my birthday/salutations

I hiked up Mt. Wantastiquet (solo) in one hour and enjoyed this view, went for a message (ahhh), had breakfast, dinner and drinks with friends, lunch with my husband of 30 years, went to Bratttleboro Museum and Art Center and was joyful. Salutation to the Dawn seems appropos.
LISTEN to the exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day! For it is Life, The very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the Varieties And Realities of your Existence;
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived
Makes every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every To-morrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn.
