Watercolor of my mother & friend at Lake Michigan, painted by my grandfather.

"One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts-- just mere thoughts-- are as powerful as electric batteries-- as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison."   (The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett)

Think happy thoughts, and if we can't think happy thoughts, then we can sing happy songs.  (As the saying goes, we can "argue for our" unhappy thoughts ("limitations") ... but then we get to keep them ... and be unhappy.)
