Shelley’s truth & Satchmo’s love

Good words from two radically different, astonishingly creative people on their birthday:

“Do it now — write nothing but what your conviction of its truth inspires you to write.” Percy Bysshe Shelley

“Seems to me it ain’t the world that’s so bad but what we’re doing to it, and all I’m saying is: see what a wonderful world it would be if only we’d give it a chance. Love, baby, love. That’s the secret.” Louis Armstrong

Simple expressions, to the world, of what it needs now.

In that spirit, listen to what my favorite septuagenerian student – “Donald in Murfreesboro TN” – said to On Point’s radio audience Tuesday morning, 18 minutes in. His point: we all have a lot to offer, if we’re motivated by truth and love.
