What tune are you whistling?

Whenever you feel afraid, just whistle a happy tune...
so the song goes,
and so the mind accepts
as though to live happily is a choice one makes
by singing a happy tune.

What happens is not our choice
what blessings come our way are just chances
encounters of space and time outside our influence
and not much good our tune would do
to change a hurricane
or tornado.

The only tune to whistle is the other one, hi ho, hi ho, off to work we go....


  1. What a lovely way to begin the weekend!
    Tiny admission: though I've played my flute since I was 8 years old, I cannot whistle, cannot!!

  2. ha. so much work to do....there is things we never see coming that will def wreck a happy day...though i do find that whistling it does make it a little easier to be happy...
