Keep swimming–and keep singing

My friend whose husband has brain cancer visited me. What can we do when something bad happens? Sometimes you can take action to find a solution, but sometimes there is no solution.

These words are from a poem from How Beautiful the Beloved by Gregory Orr.  One of the best kinds of friends are friends who give you a book—a book you never would have read if it wasn’t a gift. One of special friends gave me this book of poems.

Words from Gregory Orr:


All you can do is keep swimming;

All you can do is keep singing.
