about

"Yesterday(Today)" was written during a period of time where I was living in Vanuatu, in the Pacific Islands, on a year where I was essentially volunteering to serve in a 'bush school' as a teacher, though all I knew about teaching was nothing. "Yesterday(Today)" came out in one sitting, after reading it quoted in an awesome book; Ruhiyyih Rabbani's book Prescription for Living. It is actually a quote from the Hindu Scriptures of the Baghavad-Gita, and its meaning is so enjoyably profound, yet practical in this really satisfying way. Really speaks to that ideal walking the spiritual path with practical feet, and also feels more usable than 'live each day like it's your last!'...

lyrics

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

Look well, therefore, to this day.
