After a difficult day yesterday following ups and downs of the summer I paused to browse my Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam, always good for a thoughtful irreverence. This is from the translation by Peter Avery and John Heath-Stubbs:
When a moment of life goes by
Let it pass only in joy;
Be careful, for the stock-in-trade of this world’s market
Is the life you purchase for yourself.
On reflection I felt ok.
Best wishes for a peaceful day – Denny Bradbury
