Friday Meditation


As you know, Friday is about getting ready for the weekend.  Today I decided not to pass on some of the horrendous puns shared with me by one of my esteemed colleagues (although I may drop just one in because I can!).  Instead I thought this poem is a chance to consider being ‘in the now’, something clinicians working in pain management really need.

Salutation To The Dawn

Look to this day!

For it is life, the very life of life.

In its brief course

Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:

The bliss of growth,

The glory of action,

The splendor of achievement,

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is just a vision,

And today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore to this day!

Such is the salutation to the dawn.

Kalidasa

 

Oh, a pun?  As you read this, remember I have to work with the person who passed it on…sigh…

She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her still.

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class, because it
was a weapon of math disruption.

No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be
stationery.

A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was arrested for
littering.

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger.  Then it hit me.

Two fish swim into a concrete wall.  One turns to the other and says
‘Dam!’

  1. Yoga is an excellent way to reduce stress in our lives. Many underestimate the importance of stress management. Over prolonged periods of time it can deplete our bodies of much needed nutrients and vitamins. This can lead to illness and disease.
