Today was not the best of days. Actually, it was a fairly discouraging day. It happens to all of us.

I've noted several times that there seems to be some spiritual or cosmic connection between me and my pink iPod. ...almost as if it is speaking to me to fit the tone of the day. Due to an appointment I was not wearing or listening to my beloved iPod this morning. This afternoon, as I was on my way "to face" the rest of my day, I plowed thru my Puma-back-bag-thing and pulled it out, put it on and pressed shuffle.

And these were the first songs that came on:

"Don't Give Up" by Peter Gabriel with Kate Bush

...well, to be honest -- I played this song about 5 times.


"She-Bop" by Cindy Lauper
"Hey Mickey" by Toni Basil
"Don't Stop" by Fleetwood Mac
"Coming Around Again" by Carly Simon

All happy and full of hope. Just what I needed! Then I saw Twin Peaks ahead of me looking so beautiful with a fog cloud hanging over the area. I snapped a picture. And the day got better.

Remember when we first moved to San Francisco and you thought the fog rolling in was a forest fire? And I had to point out that the forests were in the other direction and that it was coming from the Richmond/Sunset districs?

Ah -the good ole' days.

LOL! ...How true -- sort of.

If you want I can pull from my journals from that time. However, we BOTH thought that there were forest fires like the ones in LA --- it was a person on the F Train who pointed out that it was not smoke. ...It was fog.

We were both Yankees without a clue!

I adore that Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush song...
"Don't give up, cause you have friends.
Don't give up, you're not beaten

I know very few people in my day-to-day life who have the amount of optimism that just seems to burst forth from you. You are truly blessed with something special here.
