Finally arrived at going forward without regret

Looked for a version of this sung by a woman.

That YouTube version by this man is just what I needed to hear this morning.  Making my way out of the darkly seductive and destructive times in my past and present that this song evokes.

How long can we search for what is not lost?

"How long, babe, can you search for what is not lost?..... Everybody will help you.  Some people are very kind ... Everybody will help you discover what you set out to find ..." (Bob Dylan)

The sun is rising over the foothills this very moment.  My life feels right this morning.  No regrets.  Nothing lost.

Where the Yin Yang symbol came from: 

"When observing the cycle of the Sun, ancient Chinese simply used a pole about 8 feet long, posted at right angles to the ground and recorded positions of the shadow. Then they found the length of a year is around 365.25 days. They even divided the year's cycle into 24 Segments, including the Vernal Equinox, Autumnal Equinox, Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice, using the sunrise and Dipper positions.
They used six concentric circles, marked the 24-Segment points, divided the circles into 24 sectors and recorded the length of shadow every day. The shortest shadow is found on the day of Summer Solstice. The longest shadow is found on the day of Winter Solstice. After connecting each lines and dimming Yin Part from Summer Solstice to Winter Solstice, the Sun chart looks like below. The ecliptic angle 23 26' 19'' of the Earth can be seen in this chart."

I love these words: My life feels right this morning. No regrets. Nothing lost.
I wish all days could begin like this for all of us.

That's just what I needed to hear this morning, too.
