What a great story and suggestions. I enjoy your writing style!
I think everyone has the blues every so often, especially those diagnosed with cancer. Walking and music are my go to “blues breakers.”

Your article comes at a good time, @jim-smith. January seems to be when it gets a little harder to stay upbeat and out of a funk. I couldn’t agree with these more — each one of them. I just recently discovered the power of putting a station of oldies or 80’s music (those are oldies to some!). It’s almost night and day what it can do for the mood.…
