Terpsichore - Figure skating is indeed dancing, of a very high order. So beautiful.

Erato - Does anyone besides me think it's just a leetle unfair for someone to be that loving and giving, and drop dead gorgeous with it?

Thalia - The need to laugh so one doesn't cry is strong with this primary season. So is the need to watch one's back.

Terpsichore II - also delightful.

Melpomene: How wonderful to help children and students, to enrich their lives!

Calliope: Love Dr. Angelou, her voice soothes the Soul. I miss her.

Terspichore: Beautiful, just beautiful.

Erato: What a kind, compassionate man. Yes, we don't don't hear the positives anymore, just the negatives, so it's refreshing to read and watch this video of the joy that he gives to others.

Thalia: I couldn't do it, but ''Binge watching the death of the GOP" would be a fun thing to do.

Terpsichore: Talented dancers with all the right moves. I love the ''Ellen" show!

Enjoyed this, Thank You, Judi for your post !

Melpomene: Pairing an appeal for help for a charity like this with the big sporting event, is an excellent idea. This should be done all the time, because maybe some of the ridiculous sums of money channeled into sports betting could be diverted toward worthy causes.

The focus on education is very good news for Somalia. The have a very long way to go.

The Columbian story s good news, too. It's hard to believe FARC will grow legal crops, but who knows. The end of the conflict will be especially helpful to the environment, which has been ravaged by such things as extensive oil spills due to terrorist acts.

Calliope: Maya Angelou's words are always an inspiration. This simple advice is easy to remember.

Terpsichore: I love figure skating, and the video was breathtaking. The environmentalist who documents this is doing very well in using videos like this one to call attention to how fast climate change is affecting B.C.

Erato: This athlete is the opposite of many self-absorbed individuals we see in sports. He is commendable in his humility, and for doing the right thing, tying the principles in this article to the one by Angelou. I hope his charity keeps doing good.

Thalia: We need humor like Colbert provides to keep from crying, I agree.

Terpsichore: This little girl is quite a dancer. She's a natural. Thanks J.L.

wow I feel spiritually lifted after reading these the stories.
Melpomene- doctors changing lives one smile at a time. To be able to live without a stigmata and shunning is priceless gift to those children.
Terpichore- Can you imagine skating on an untouched piece of heaven and feeling so connected to the environment and divinity. This is a fabulous way to show the effects of climate change.
Erato- Dunn is beyond amazing in all he has shared and given. All without beating his chest. He is a hero and incredible human being
I love Maya and all these storeis are connected to her philosphy of Just Do Right
