mean genuine upbeat stories breaking all day. I'd
love that. I know the world is plagued with climate
change disasters, corrupt politicians and corporations,
even with people cheating their children into Yale.
I teach once a week at a community college, and cheating
is something we teachers detest. Still.
What if there was a real news network you could turn
to that gave you nothing but good news. I am sure there
are enough of those every day to power a 24 hour news
cycle, and I'm not saying I'd watch or listen to such a
station full time. But how sweet to take a break and
hear only good news.
Searching through my paintings today I realized I could
probably have a whole show dedicated to clementines.
(maybe some lemons and limes too.) This got my husband
Steven, and me laughing and trying to sing Oh My Darling
Clementine -- which we insisted would have to be played on
a ukelele. You get the idea. So how about it? If you have a
happy news story -- why not share it? It's a very grey day here
in Toronto and we are ready for All Good News.
Have a sharing your good news day.
