When you’re feeling blue, find someone’s child and watch them play.
That does it for me. So, yesterday, I sought out my friend Paula, who has two grandsons. This had the triple-play effect. I got a shot of Paula’s love and her pure, unbridled joy for life. I watched her two grandsons climbing in the playroom at Matt Ross Community Center. Several hours passed in this way, that might otherwise have been steeped in melancholy. And as a bonus, her four-year-old grandson Chaska persuaded “Auntie Corinne” to come to Whole Foods with them, as a consequence of which, I finished my week’s grocery shopping with healthy foods.
What better antidote when this lady sings the blues? None. Thank you, Paula Kenyon-Vogt! I am in your debt once more, and happily so.
