WISDOM ON A PARK BENCH

Today on my walk through the Central Park Ramble, I spotted a bench with the following dedication imprinted on a gold plaque attached to the top rung:

Yesterday is history,

Tomorrow is mystery,

Today is the present.

This “haiku” says it all:  This moment is the only one in which life is actually happening.

I think I will ask that the same message be tacked to the bench I’m donating via a bequest to the Central Park Conservancy in my will. 

A message worth repeating since it’s so challenging to remember…
