When I used to drive and heard a knocking sound in the engine, instead of worrying, I would turn the radio up.

For me this a metaphor for life….Rather than worry about all the minutia, I find it better to either throw some paint around, take a long walk or turn the music up.

Some magical hummingbirds for the day.

    I love that quote, and it made me smile… though I know that if we were traveling together, it would probably cause me despair. I suppose there are certain attitudes we can appreciate best when we see them from a distance… My very best to you, my dear friend… wishing you fine music in your ears, and no alarming knocks.
