In my twenties, I was lucky enough to graduate from a Dale Carnegie class. One of the concepts there on dealing with worry is to live in daytight-compartments. This always made me think of doors between days so that today is always sealed off from what happened yesterday and what may happen tomorrow.
When someone talks of "one day at a time," I think about these doors and how all i have to do is make it to bedtime. “It is not our goal to see what lies dimly in the distance but to do what clearly lies at hand.”
This is a composite image made for use on merewisdom.org to illustrate the idea of daytight compartments. I combined an entrance at the University of Houston taken late at night with a sunset shot at Stillman Lake back in 2007. I used Gimp, the free alternative to photoshop, to make this.
