Day 1777: It’s good to be tough

It’s good to be tough


when things get rough

but it’s good to be vulnerable, too.

In every location


I see invitation

to huddle and muddle things through.


After every bad storm


it’s important to mourn

and also find strength in your heart.

So put on your mittens


and play with some kittens


and […it’s tough to come up with a good last line, so could you do your part?]


It’s good to see Tom Petty sing

“It’s Good to Be King.”


Thanks for reading and helping my rhymes.

I’ll now express thanks several times.
