Wrap It Up

Tie a ribbon around the past And free yourself from it at last, For what has been, has been and gone, And need no more be dwelt upon, Tomorrow is another day, And soon it will be underway. We spin the dice, the die is cast, The good and bad we may contrast, For every day the sun has shone, Are those the heavy rain falls on, We gather rosebuds while we may, To make our lives a sweet bouquet.. The minefield of mistakes is vast, We need not feel too much aghast, Minds will wander hither and yon, But not all cross the Rubicon, Sometimes the blue will turn to grey, Sometimes we will ourselves betray.

The past is only useful to learn from our mistakes. Plenty of time to dwell on it under a tombstone! Aloha! Rico

Thanks, Rico - or from the depths of hell!

Much wisdom here, Beth. Often it's better to 'turn the page.' Dwelling on the past any more than it takes to learn from it can just depress us more. Here's to the future! :) gw

Thanks, Gershon - I guess if we can dwell on the past we don't have too much to worry about!
