Today


Look to this day . . . for yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision . . . but today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Yeah! That's what I thought when I stumbled upon it yesterday. :)

Is that truly a picture of you? Oh then, you are so much as I would have imagined....and that is a good thing!

:) No, it isn't me - it's a detail from a painting by Edmund Blair Leighton called The Hostage. Here's the link to view the full-size painting:

The girl in the painting does look very much like me, however, with the long wavy hair and all, which is partly why I chose this painting.

The way she is gazing out to sea also reminded me a little of myself - I thought "Yes, that would be me, staring into space and daydreaming." :)

I must confess I knew it must be a painting, but I thought maybe you had attempted to do a real-life "copy" of it.
