…”Six Ways to Turn Even the Worst Days into Great Ones”…”The Very Real Dangers of Turning Right on a Red Light”…”Note to Baby Boomers: Millenials Don’t Want Your Stuff”…

All in a day’s headlines shout cautionary tales of perspective & keeping an eye on change.

Something about the auction house market, every day, “being flooded with boomer rejects. “Hardly a day goes by that we don’t get calls from people who want to sell a big dining room set or bedroom suite because nobody in the family wants it. Millennials don’t want brown furniture, rocking chairs or silver-plated tea sets. Millennials don’t polish silver.”

And so it goes…

April gets into full swing now that the long Easter weekend has come and gone and folks get back to work and school and Spring routines. Classes will soon end at the universities as the stresses of exams and final papers rear their stressful heads.

By the end of the month, the Vancouver Convention Centre will be hosting the “Newtworking World Anesthesia Convention” that the unconventionals might quip will be a real sleeper!

’Tis sweet as the day begins to dawn,
When the lark her song is singing,
To wander at will through the grassy lawn
Where fresh flowers around are springing.
’Tis sweet at that solemn hour to go
O’er the rocky slope, all alone,
Where the scattering streamlets freely flow…
’Tis well to inhale the earthly gale,
As it sweeps the green hill’s side…
Or to look on the wood in its leafy pride,
In the glen or on the grove, the dawn is fair,—
Morning is beautiful every where!
~Thomas Furlong, “Morning Meditations”

To one whose elastic and vigorous thought keeps pace with the sun, the day is a perpetual morning. ~Henry David Thoreau

Cheers to a terrific Tuesday where sunshine & smiles are your wake up calls!
