This Holiday Season is definitively going fast! It is a time to reflect on the Past while the New Year allows each of us to start afresh and "Seize the Day"!
Carpe Diem... An expression which in itself says so much!
Whatever our wishes for this Year 2011, if we just remember "Carpe Diem" as a Motto, we will take action and see a difference in our lives.
Yes, we can make a difference in our life. Yes, we can reach out and help others!
I wish, I wish...So Many wishes!
We can wish all we want but if we do not do something about them, nothing will happen.
Like the little train said, "Yes I can, yes I can..."
Neither a Writer nor a Poet but a dreamer and a lover of Art in all its forms, I thought I would close this year with the words of Robert Frost...
Go loving by at twilight,
He knew not whether homeward,
Or outward from the village,
Or (chimes were ringing) church ward,
He waited (they were strangers)
Till they were out of hearing
To bid them both be happy.
“Be happy, happy, happy,
And seize the day of pleasure.”
The age-long theme is Age’s.
’Twas Age imposed on poems
Their gather-roses burden
To warn against the danger
That overtaken lovers
From being over flooded
With happiness should have it.
And yet not know they have it.
But bid life seize the present?
It lives less in the present
Than in the future always,
And less in both together
Than in the past. The present
Is too much for the senses,
Too crowding, too confusing—
Too present to imagine.
May you have a wonderful New Year!
God's Blessings always!
