“Today, Well-lived”

Today, I was blessed to happen upon the wonderful Sanskrit “Salutation to the Dawn” by Kalidasa and wanted to share it with you:

Look to this day,

For it is life,

The very life of life.

In its brief course lie all

The realities and verities of existence,

The bliss of growth,

The splendor of action,

The glory of power–

For yesterday is but a dream,

And tomorrow is only a vision,

But today, well-lived,

Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.

What a wonderful reminder to us all to make the most of this fresh, beautiful day before us! Let’s take joy in our work! Let’s revel in the “bliss of growth.” Let’s take pride in our “splendor of action.” And let’s harvest the “glory of power,” as we create new worlds and improve our craft. Above all, let’s “look well” to this day as we all write on!
