Occasionally I am inspired by lines of lyrics or poems. One day suddenly one line hit upon me. “Today is a gift” Later on I learned that this is one line of the poem of one American poet and also I heard one American president or his wife referred to this sentence.
While cleaning and organizing at home, I found a very old notebook and saw one message from a teacher of my elementary school. It said, “Today never comes back.”
I tend to indulge myself in daily routine and humdrum. At home I am an oldest and nobody scolds me anymore. The comment of my teacher is a stimulant for self-indulgent person like me.
