And then Little Sprout started singing and dancing to one of my very favorite songs, and I came out of my mental gloom and doom just in time to hear something that just pulled me right out of the funk I was in and gave me a little hope. So I though I would share that, instead.
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life
And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you
The Bare Necessities, from The Jungle Book
Maybe not the most profound of all sources for inspiration, but it works for me....
