Midwest memories

Dateline: The Midwest

With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, 'Studs, you're an optimist.' I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what's the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven.”
― Studs Terkel

I am an eternal optimist.

It may be a fault, it may not be, but in the end, I believe in you, I believe in us.

I believe in the human race.

Believe good will win over evil, believe in love vs hate, believe that in all of us, some way down deeper than others, lies the soul of the creator.

Yep, an eternal optimist, so be it, but I believe it to be stronger today than it was 14 days ago when I packed up and left home to spend some time out here in the middle, out here between the two coasts.

Out here in the Midwest.
