The economic times in the country is really not the best. Yet, we are hopeful and carry on .. as usual. We are a resilient bunch and even though we are not as happy with the political climate and all the (empty) promises that were given .. we are still hopeful.
The saying is .. where there is life .. there is hope. And so, we hope, for good health care, more jobs, etc.
This was written by a dear friend and mentor:
Life’s task is to be like an otter, seeking adventure and joy in our
endeavors, instead of being like a beaver, always tied to work that
must be done and feeling guilty when it is not accomplished.

Quotes for July ~
' For him in vain the envious seasons roll -
Who bears eternal summer in his soul.'
- - Oliver Wendell Holmes, The Old Player
' Summer is the time when one shed's one's tensions with one's clothes,
and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief -
that all's right with the world.'
- - Ada Louise Huxtable
' Deep summer is when ..
laziness finds respectability. '
- - Sam Keen
