Celebration of the Senior Swimmer & Surfer Athletes

Today we celebrate the senior set, the aging athlete. Take inspiration from this post. You're never too old to follow your dreams.

Salutation to the Dawn

Look to this day
For it is life
The very life of life.
In it's brief course lie
All the realities and verities of exisitence:
The bliss of growth,
The splendor of action,
The glory of power.
For 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.

     - Kalidasa, fourth century Italian playwright
