Mourning Joy

"You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow."

Welcome famous widow Lauren Bacall to our special club. The club nobody volunteers to join.

Bacall, born Betty Joan Perske, was married to Humphrey Bogart and starred in famous films "How to Marry a Millionaire," "Key Largo," "To Have and Have Not," and more. After Bogey's death, Bacall penned " By Myself" and later updated it--"By Myself and Then Some."

Today, after we remember Him, let's pick up a pen and write. Write about two lips, write about a whistle, write about Him. Just write.

Go ahead. I dare you.

Mourning Joy:

Q: Where do animals go when they lose their tales?

A: A retail store.

Have a joyful day. And remember, we're not alone.
