Sunday, July 1

Hot July brings gilly-flowers/Apricots and cooling showers.....

The world is so full of a number of things,
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings

~~~ "Happy Thought" from A Child's Garden of Verses, Robert Louis Stevenson. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922.

That's one side of life, and a good one, for those who CAN say it: we SHOULD take this attitude, if we can. And then we should get on with the work of making more of the world that happy. Simple, but true. And hard to do.

On July 1, more less the year's midpoint, here's to the power of poetry and "happy thoughts.'

Today, July 1, is Canada Day. Venus is bright in the evening in Leo but slips to the south throughout the month.
