Love that anonymous poem about not giving up. I'd never seen that one before. I think I may need to paint it on a wall somewhere so my kids can read it often.

I needed this today. Thank you! I always appreciated (and still do) both of your cheery attitudes.

I love e.e.cummings and that poem has such a happy feel to it. Thanks for the positive vibes today!

I still remember being introduced to e.e. cummings in high school, and it was an incredible revelation. I just love how he turned my ideas of poetry and structure and meter on their heads, and opened up a whole new way of looking at it. Of course I immediately tried to write exactly like him and produced some of the most inane dribble ever, but that's how it goes when you're a kid.

Thanks for reminding me to break the rules every once in a while.

Oh, and I think the sunny disposition is a familial trait; we all seem to have that great outlook on life.


Thank you for the positive lift today! :o)

Of course I meant "drivel" not "dribble," but you know what I meant ...

I love your happy cheery self!
This post makes me happy.
I'm glad I read this today!


Thanks for the dose of positivity, Beth! You and Susan are just such rays of sunshine and I'm definitely one of those people who wakes up in a grumpy fog, so I'm going to try and adopt a little of your sunshiney peppiness! :)
