The wisdom of Robert Nathan
"There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday."
Robert Nathan (1894-1985)
American novelist and poet
I have so many cascading reactions to this quotation that it's hard to organize some personal comments……
Still….for each of us, ultimately, we have no choice but to accept Nathan's dictum. I had my chance at life yesterday, I took my swings, I danced my dance, I tried to say what I meant to say, I wanted it to be a good day, already I've forgotten a lot of it.…the cascade overwhelms me…..Nathan didn't mention that yesterday's joys and regrets can remain very close…..
