Thanks, Robin!

Ever had one of those days when the hours between breakfast and bedtime pass in a flash?

I know you have!

It’s been that way around here for a couple of weeks now – just too much on the schedule.

In the middle of it all, I thought of Robin Williams.

<Oh boy! Poor Crystal is cracking up!!!> 😉


Seriously though, do you remember the movie, Dead Poets Society? In it, Robin Williams is an English professor who inspires his students with his unconventional style of teaching. He urges them to “seize the day” (carpe diem).

After the popularity of the film, that phrase (originally from the writings of Horace) quickly caught on. It reminded all of us to “live in the moment”.

Recently, after a blur of an afternoon, I happened to glance out the window and notice that our iris were at their peak. So beautiful; so soothing to behold; I could feel myself begin to relax . . .

My mind wandered for a few seconds, and then somehow I remembered the movie . . .

Carpe diem, indeed! 🙂

Wishing you a calm moment today.
