“Yesterday is a dream, tomorrow but 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” – Sanskrit Proverb.
Yesterday was one of those days that in some ways I’d like to forget. Though its events played on my mind well into the evening and overnight. We are in the process of clearing out G’s mum’s house. She died last autumn and finally the affairs are in order so they can think of selling. Problem is his brother is living there and the key problem is that he has little or no standards of cleanliness. It’s so bad that we need to clean the place up before we get the cleaners in. So, that was my day yesterday. Master spent that same time sorting out some of the clutter, thankfully brother was nowhere to be seen.
Over the course of the evening both of us would suddenly shake our heads and exclaim about the day just passed. Thankfully we enjoyed a lovely meal at a local Italian restaurant. We discussed that we could take a bus there and that we have no such luxuries where we live.
Today is a new day. We are staying win a little airbnb and from where I am sitting I can see a lovely sun drenched garden, with pots planted by our hosts. The day holds hope. G’s other brother and family will be joining us today – one of the reasons I felt the need to clean up a bit yesterday. There will be difficult things to discuss. But I think today will be more of a day to take forward memories. I think it’s time to concentrate on today and forget much of yesterday.
