cheerer-uppers

When April showers just keep pouring and pouring, and the parade of life begins to feel like a rain-out, the best thing to do is take refuge beneath an umbrella of cheer. An assemblage of life-affirming images, ideas and actions that can catapult you into a sunnier state of mind. Things like a darling origami elephant. Or a virtual stroll through the Boboli Gardens. Poems curated by Ted Kooser. And the fascinating radio story I heard this morning about the father and son from Barcelona who created exquisite tile ceilings in public buildings across America in the late 1800s. I could go on, but the  gloom has lifted. It's still rainy out, but the sun is shining on the inside.
