Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.”   —   Mahatma Gandhi

Know what you are doing.  Love what you are doing.  And believe in what you are doing.”   —   Will Rogers

(That’s a pretty big 3!  Starting with knowing makes a lot of sense, but knowing can be pretty relative.  And, if you love what you’re doing, you’d think it would – naturally – follow that you believe in what you’re doing.  Right?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  How do you think he got his hat to stay on this way???  Bobby pins?  Was this look just part of the comic image?   —   YUR

(If the aliens were to come down and meet with Roseanne, I think they’d say – paraphrased – to her what they said to Woody Allen, in Stardust Memories*We enjoy your work.  Particularly the earlier, funnier stuff.*  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work.”   —   Richard Bach

(Desire definitely lightens the load.  Hey, the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull is still out there, folks.  I think I read Illusions, about a hundred years ago!  He had a terrible plane accident in 2012, but he just recently returned to flying!  If you’re interested, go to his website and pay him a visit!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”   —   Margaret Atwood

(Dirt is a great smell!  Most of us have become too citified to get our hands dirty, and that’s a crying shame.  Okay.  You don’t actually have to get your hands dirty.  You can wear gloves!  We all should pledge to plant something this spring.  It doesn’t have to be a tree, or an entire vegetable garden, although that would be nice.  Just plant some annuals, or some tulip or daffodil bulbs.  Anything where you put a spade, or trowel, into the earth, so you can get that great smell!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

My imagination can picture no fairer happiness than to continue living for art.”   —   Clara Schumann

Clara Schumann

Clara Schumann (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Possibly said soon after the death of her husband, Robert Schumann.  What a remarkable and talented couple they were.  He, an accomplished composer, and she an accomplished pianist and composer, from the Romantic era.  The story of their lives is filled with such romance and drama that I thought it would make for a great movie.  As it turns out, someone in the 1940s had the same – great – idea, and did make it into a movie, starring Katharine Hepburn, called Song of Love.  It was released in 1947.  I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it, but it looks like a great film with a great cast.  Obviously, Kate plays Clara.  Paul Henreid plays Robert Schumann.  You movie buffs would remember him as Victor Laszlo, in Casablanca.  The film also stars Robert Walker and Leo G. Carroll.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s shown on Turner Classic Movies, from time to time.  Who knows?  Maybe it’s even available On Demand.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
