Sending Love, Pumpkin Soup and Fireworks

This ancient Sanskrit poem has been a source of strength for me through a number of very difficult times – when one of our baby twins was desperately ill and through various other family traumas that many of us have to deal with from time to time.

Look to this day
for it is life
the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
the realities and truths of existence
the joy of growth
the splendour of action
the glory of power.
For yesterday is but a memory
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived
makes every yesterday a memory
of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day….

I give it to you again here in the hope that it will help anyone else out there who needs to make the most of each and every day to create those memories of happiness and to make ‘every tomorrow a vision of hope.’

Our lovely neighbour brought us half a pumpkin yesterday and today I have made a delicious Pumpkin Soup served with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds – scrumptious! Thanks, Sue.

On Saturday evening we went into Redruth to see the fire works and they were just fabulous!  Enjoy the gallery.I wish I could bring you the sounds and the smells as well!  Click on any photo to get the full effect.

Look to this day, Acclimatisation and Trail Ridge, USA

1  This poem has taken me through some  difficult times and today I have been reminded of the importance of what it is saying.

Look to this day
for it is life
the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
the realities and truths of existence
the joy of growth
the splendour of action
the glory of power.
For yesterday is but a memory
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived
makes every yesterday a memory
of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day….

2  Very happy email from Lucy who is having an amazing time. Today is an acclimatisation day at Namche Bazaar. They are at 11,500ft at the moment  and are feeling the effects of the altitude.
3  I’ve spent a happy hour or so looking through our photos from our USA trip last year. The highest point we reached was 11,796ft and that was by car up in the Rockies. The shortest of walks was hard work. I am in awe of what Lucy is doing.
