Crumps ! That’s what my mother says. Aspen Candy Company shuttered their store, and my favorite purveyor of Jelly Beans is, sadly, no more. It was marvelous while it lasted. On a related note, the guitar store where I spent many a noon-hour also closed up shop and moved their retail operation to Nashville. Crumps. But then, it snowed, the mountains were made more beautiful, the Aspen leaves turned shimmering gold, and my folks came to visit. A pleasant Smile Fierce reminder.

Life is fun. Ski today, work tomorrow... It's about choice. Choose not to be dismal. I am a person with MS, but it does not rule my life, or my attitude. In 1979 I decided to embrace an expression that reminded me that I always have the power to choose my state of mind. "Smile Fierce". Do what you can, don't focus on what you can't.
