Episode 119 - Despair is Not an Option

“Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.” - Ray Bradbury

Lift you heads, babies. Look to the future. Feel the breeze of the oncoming Summer and understand that we shall get through this blip in the universe clock.

Lift your heads and rejoice in the warmth of the sun. 

Lift your head and hear the rock music blaring from your neighbors boombox, the smell of the grill and the blooms apparent. 

Lift your head and taste the ice cold beer.

Life will be better. Remember those who have fallen, those who are yet to succumb and those who are guarding us as best they can. Thank them in your hearts and smile. Because that's why they fought, that's why they continue to wage a battle against a virus. 

We will get through. Despair is not an option.
