“On John Schulz’s long journey toward cancer survivorship, he surrendered his voice box, he lost touch with his taste buds. But, he didn’t lose his battle and he didn’t lose his unique literary style. In Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days, John makes us laugh, makes us cry, makes us smarter as we join him on his medical odyssey. At its very core this wonderfully honest autobiography becomes a love story: Love of life, love of language, love of Sweetie who drives on chemo days.

“Just My Type, 50 Years Preserved in Ink”

When I first started out on my cancer journey, I wanted to know a lot of things. I found that the doctors would answer my questions but would not volunteer any information. I also found that I didn’t know what questions to ask. I set out on a mission to write a book that would help the beginning cancer patient and caregivers to feel better about things.

And, according to many readers, the book works. It is full of answers, full of love, and it passes on the mantra:

“Everything is going to be all right.”

We are all affected by cancer, through ourselves, loved ones, friends–Cancer touches all of us sooner or later. Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days is an easy, informative, feel good read. Try it. Tell your friends.

Introspection On A Winter’s Day…

winter flower


“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”—Albert Camus—

Having known a beautiful summer’s day, we can always travel back there in our minds. Having known happy times, we can return to the moment and find happiness. Having found happiness, we can enhance its values by sharing it with others.

Commit a random act of kindness today.
Share a smile.
Everything is going to be all right.

Time To Open A New Door..

open a new door

“We all want to break our orbits, float like a satellite gone wild in space, run the risk of disintegration. We all want to take our lives in our own hands and hurl them out among the stars.”—David Bottoms—

It is time to begin with optimism, a new hope, and a bit of adventure. Reach out to touch someone new.

Open a door for the first time.
Before the day is over, laugh out loud for no apparent reason.

Share a smile
Everything is going to be all right.

Happiness is Contagious…

Happiness is contagious


“Remember that happiness is as contagious as gloom. It should be the first duty of those who are happy to let others know of their gladness.”—Maurice Maeterlinck—

This reminds me of the gloom that was spread by the media during the past year. It WAS contagious.
But happiness will conquer it.
Counteract the sadness and negativism that is around you today. Let’s all join in to make  happiness the norm instead of fear and gloom.

Share a smile and a kind word with lots of people.
Tell everyone you see that “Everything is going to be all right.”

Have a wonderful day!
Share lots of smiles and reach out to catch the returns

Someone Could Use Your Clutter…


Boxing Day

“The charity that is a trifle to us can be precious to others.”—Homer—

When something new enters our house, my wife has a habit of saying, “Something comes in, something goes out.”

We often have so many possessions that some of them have lost any semblance of meaning or pleasure. A lot of these objects such as warm clothing or children’s toys, may be given to someone who needs them.

Make someone happy and in turn your act will remove clutter from your life and give you a good feeling.

Share a smile along with everything else

Adversity May Lead To Something Good.



Christmas 2015

And he went on to be world famous. His words are still with us after all these years.

A Christmas Carol
Charles Dickens’ novel has been so popular since it was first published in 1843 that it has never been out of print. Dickens’ interest in the plight of the poor and social injustice likely started when his father was sentenced to prison and Charles, then 12, had to quit school and take a job in a factory. Nearly 20 years later, in search of a bestseller, he came up with the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come—from the Fussy Librarian—

Merry Christmas
“God Bless us every one”—Tiny Tim.

Today is a wonderful day to practice optimism, happiness, and smiling
Share lots of smiles
Everything is going to be all right.

Organize Your Jobs Today…

most difficult

“If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”—Mark Twain—

It is much easier to share a smile if you have taken care of the unpleasant or difficult parts of the day. Make a list today, even a mental list will help. Prioritize your goals so that things end up on a pleasant and easy note.

As I pay attention to the more practiced workmen on a landscaping job, I see that they prefer to get the more difficult part of the day’s work done first and then sail through the easy tasks to finish the day.

And they share smiles, laugh, and joke as they work
Everything is going to be all right

Approach Things Slowly and Gently…

pause quietly


”Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”—Nathaniel Hawthorne—

Approach things slowly and gently this time of the year. When stressed, pause quietly for a while and concentrate on removing the unpleasant feelings from your mind. Allow the space created thereby to fill with happiness and laughter.

  • Pause quietly
  • Share a smile
  • Everything is going to be all right.
