I was looking at an on-line magazine, Rue, and in a photo shot of a Swedish designer's home was a gold framed mirror, leaning against a wall,with this hand written in black on the mirror: "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." I googled this and found that it is a quote attributed to Dr. Seuss. The old guy was deeper than I knew. I think that is what you and I do, after the passing of some time...smile.
At this stage of my life, I have a lot to smile about.
