Hi everyone. Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing. But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
Two of my favorite movies feature today’s song. In “Animal House” it is the song that is playing at the start of the toga party (after the empty keg goes through the window) and right before the band plays “Shout”. In “Innerspace” it plays after Jack (Martin Short) & Tuck (Dennis Quaid) share a drink and let loose together. Just before the music starts, Tuck tells Jack: “When things are at their darkest, it is a brave man that can kick back and party. Let the good times roll”.
Of course, this goes for all us brave women as well, now and always. Here’s to the good times coming again soon for all of us.
