Thank you for opportunities to take time out,
For time with old friends and new,
For time to spend with you, in silence, and emptiness,
in nature, in wide open spaces.
Thank you for busyness and schedules, and diaries, and appointments.
For time with others,
planning and sharing, meeting and exploring,
for all the things that make us who we are.
Whatever we make of this day, may it be this day,
not yesterday, or tomorrow, but this day.
In this time, and this moment, may we, you and I,
share together, all the things.
