SNOWY DAYS AND THURSDAYS
(Shall Not Get Me Down)

A Ditty from way, way, way, way back

When Melancholia makes you frown
Reach deep within your soul,
For Happiness lies there deep down
Just takes a slight cajole

Yield not to weight of gravity
The choice is yours to make
With focus spent on levity
A light heart shall partake

Let not those burdens callous thee;
Take charge of them instead.
Cast out those wretched thoughts and see
You'll cheer your troubled head!

Thanks my friends...

Um.. Doc - Just "Whistle while you work"...

PdV - We'll make sure that Doc sends you some of that snow

My Guys - Deer & Sy - Thanks - Got the happy face on... Hugs to you both...


Waft every crest upon your destined sea.
Embrace the Wave of Serendipity,
Lest its elusive arcane ecstasy
Refurl with sail for all eternity.

we all need to cajole now and then dont we
and we can right here in your wonderful cadence ..
and I love your signature too btw


Heaven bound on wings of love,
there's so much that you can rise above.
I surrender heart and soul,
sacrificed to a higher goal.

"yield not to weight of gravity"

Indeed, how to battle the lines drawn of life in its vagaries.

Yet on into the fray again and again we throw ourselves.

Thought inspiring words, you bring.

Enjoyed the happy mood-set of your piece.

Of course it was only 81 here today so the gloomies don't stand a snowball's chance in Florida !

Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, we need help lifting the gloom... which is why I cherish the smile-givers. *S* This gem cheered my head considerably!!! (But what's snow? *G*)

I started reading with 'Karen Carpenter's' voice ringing in my ears - and of course counted my blessings as I looked out my window to clear skys and pavement

But I'm replying because you've lifted my spirits - pure and simple~S~

Nancy - you mean it only snows on a Thursday at the Cape, in the pale moonlight? H'mmm, does that mean a snow shovel, for that special day? Today is 70 degrees, here in Alabama. hehehe
