This has been a good day – walking to Urban Harvest for the week’s supply of fruits and vegetables, doing a bit of work on a contract and some writing, walking and talking with a friend who’s moving soon (I’ll miss her), talking on the phone with my partner (who always puts a smile on my face). So I’ll slip easily into sleep.
Some days aren’t so easy. Some days shadows follow me to bed and dance to wild music, keeping me awake. That’s when I need this quotation that’s long been attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Finish each 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. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
