Let’s take A Moment Day 59

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.

Not surprisingly, all four members of the Beatles went on to have successful solo careers.  Ringo Starr has toured with many different musicians under the heading of his All Starr Band.  And each year on his birthday, July 7, Starr asks his fans around the world to either say or think thoughts of peace and love at noon to “create a wave of peace and love across the planet”.  This movement grows more each year, and since Starr will be 80 years young this July, I hope even more people and countries will participate in this beautiful act of kindness for a man who has given us all so much.

Peace, remember peace is how we make it,
Here within your reach
If you’re big enough to take it.”

I do not own the rights to anything.  I am just sharing what I love and how I am coping with you.

Stay well.
