Mix and Match

Here's something for the beginning of the week - I've printed it out and hung it at my desk. Reminds me of sun salutations, not just because the words are similar, but the intention behind both ideas.

Salutation to the Dawn
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow 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!
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
- Kalidasa, Indian Poet

Its from My Salmagundi, which I'm sure will be making appearances again.
