The sun is shining and we are finally drying out. It's warmer than normal, but we won't complain. Yet. The birds are out and life is good.

American author and poet Maya Angelou once said something that sticks with me in troubled times. She said:
"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."
So in these troubled times, I'm going to sing more even though I have no answers. Matter of fact, I'm going to sing even though I don't always have a song. It surely can't hurt. So after you have written lots of letters, put your iPod on the Bose and sing your heart out.
