As I was reading I was expecting the worst as your threatening disaster occurred! I am glad you survived it, and that you actually managed to get your flu jabs! I thought you would get cancelled at the last minute. That was an exciting read, a...

A heartwarming story! Your kindness and care towards the cats is impressive and worthy. Kindness towards animals is, in my opinion, a sign of innate goodness, to be respected!

There is a nice feeling to this poem. It almost makes me wish I had been a bit older in 1970 and could remember it better! But youth can be at any time. All of us experience these moments when we are free, or optimistic, carefree.
