A mantra for all seasons

Are you eating chocolate, too?

 

Good Hershey’s.

 

A story on a wall at Ellis Island lingers on this beautiful Thursday in which most of us would probably like to be someplace other than where we are:

 

An Irish Immigrant girl of 18 or 20, upon reaching the shotgun examination officer set to determine if she would be a burden to society, was asked:

 

Man: How many stairs can you wash in an hour?

 

Woman: I didn’t come to this country to wash stairs.

This is my new Mantra for every time I doubt myself.

“I didn’t come to this country to wash stairs.” – I know what I mean.
