🤗 Feel Good Hack ~ Can’t Help But Feel Good

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” ~ Robert Fulghum

Today’s Poem ~ Evening Song

Evening Song

Sherwood Anderson

My song will rest while I rest. I struggle along. I’ll get back to the corn and the open fields.

Don’t fret, love, I’ll come out all right. 

Back of Chicago the open fields. Were you ever there 

Trains coming toward you out of the West. Streaks of light on the long gray plains? 

Many a song aching to sing. 

I’ve got a gray and ragged brother in my breast that’s a fact. 

Back of Chicago the open fields long trains go west too in the silence. 

Don’t fret, love. I’ll come out all right.

And, then there’s the news, yikes!!  I found the following on the CDC website. It’s lent, I think I’ll give up checking the news stories every ten minutes (LOL). Have a great day. Stay healthy. Stay strong.
