Hello. I woke up this morning with a Monty Python lyric in my head... "always look at the bright side of life, do-do...do-do..." Several years ago I read an article by Norman Vincent Peale in which he stated that we should look for something good in all of life's offerings. That is such a comforting way to live. We get sucked into the dark well of negative thoughts. Time is too precious to waste on a pail full of grief. Life is good. Now there's a tattoo for you.
We had a jazz duo perform at the Club last night. Bill Smith plays alto sax and Charles Sanders tickles the keys. They are fantastic musicians. Jazz is like Scotch, or Blue Cheese, it is an acquired taste. Your first taste might make you wince, then as you sit back and let the flavor massage your senses you begin to enjoy. Time mellows the taste and it becomes quite hypnotic.
I think many of us need to look at life that way. Don't judge the "taste" so quickly. Racism, elite-ism and hate might go away if we all take time to enjoy the taste of diversity.
