Well, here are the first words of my 365-page book of 2016:
A cool rain is spraying the sidewalks, lawns, and rooftops in my hometown, but, it's of no consequence to me. 'Cause, I love the idea of dancing and singing in the rain. Much like Gene Kelly did in the following video clip from the movie Singin' In The Rain 'cause I believe a life well-lived has a lot to do with how you arrange your mind. For example, I think Frank Baum, the author of The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, should have had a character in his book ask,"The great and powerful Wizard" for a great and powerful attitude.
A well-written story should include laughter, fun, kindness, romance, forgiveness, and gratitude, coupled with the courage to meet life's challenges. Therefore, I'm determined to follow my bliss this year and to remain grateful for the rest of my favorite things in life; grace, loyalty, forgiveness, friendship, family, and love.
So, I don't care if it drizzles all day, in fact, I might go outside and dance. I could pretend a tree is a lamppost. What story will you write this year?
The lyrics to Singin' In The Rain were written by Arthur Freed and the music by Nacio Herb Brown
