In the epic TV series, Game of Thrones, one of the main characters, Arya Stark, is taking swordsmanship lessons from master swordsman Syrio Forel. On a regular basis, he would ask her the question, “What do we say to death?”
The proper response was, “Not today”.

The corollary to that question is, “What do we say to life?” The answer might be,
“Today I will create something.
Today I will do someone a kindness.
Today I will embrace beauty.
Today I will live.”
Here’s to today.
Until next time…
