new year – new day

Finish every day and be done with it…
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
To-morrow is a new day;
you shall begin it well and serenely,
and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

 

In preparation for tomorrow, I am grateful for Emerson’s wisdom. It is a reminder for all of us to begin each day open handed and ready to receive all the day has to give.

As the sun sets on 2019 I treasure the moments, the memories and grieve the losses. Like the view in the image above, I will wake tomorrow knowing a new year stretches out in front of me – in front of all of us.

The year will fill soon enough. Begin it well.

To begin a New Year

Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.

Bless what there is, for being

 

Bless what there is, for being…
bless it because it exists;
you need no other reason…

Lest We Forget

Alan SunArt of Marp: “Did a painting to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the armistice in Europe.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns fell silent.
