New Year: New Day

Look to this day,
For it is life, the very life of life.
In it’s brief course lie all the realities & verities of existence, The bliss of growth,
The splendor of action,
The glory of power –
For yesterday is but a dream,
& tomorrow is only a vision,
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
& every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
(Sanskrit proverb. Kalidasa)
