rain or shine?


cold, morning rain does little but make one anxious to reach their destination, even if that is work or school. this innovative student solved the problem of hands free walking on one such campus morning in 1969. “U-M engineering student gary keck of detroit is too unconventional to raise an umbrella. he wards off the morning rain with a stylish sombrero. ole!”

“optimists are neither in denial nor naïve about challenges and difficulties in life.

they simply attend to and acknowledge the positive.”

  1. Thomas Jefferson wrote, ” In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.” it appears this young man is swimming against the current. Sometimes that’s a good idea. Have a wonderful Sunday.

  3. Thanks for sharing. The weather has been warm and sunny this Spring here in Switzerland but yesterday we had torrential rain and this morning there is snow! I walked to work in the snow (55 minutes – I do it each day) and I can tell you I was in a hurry to reach work – it was freezing! I have a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to have a look? Have a good day, Sam 🙂
