Things Are Looking Up

     Someone with my proclivities has to be reminded that happiness requires him to “stay close to home:” that is, to keep the greater part of his attention on things that are personally important to him, and to hold the “big stuff” that occupies the attention of the talking heads at a good distance for as long as possible. With today’s foray into matters medical, it’s a particularly important bit of advice.

     My beloved wife Beth (a.k.a. “the Curmudgeon’s Significant Other” or C.S.O.) is nearing the end of her journey through cancer treatment and recovery. While she has some months of healing and plastic surgery ahead of her, she’s looking and feeling better than she has in some time. It’s an occasion for rejoicing and thankful prayer…and maybe a little music, too.

     This is my favorite track from one of Twentieth Century rock-music’s high points:

     Give thanks with me, Gentle Readers!

    Prayers answered, in a positive way!

    Congratulations to Beth, & you as well.

    I’ve been through the big C myself, & a positive prognosis is a wonderful thing to hear.
