“Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.”–C.S. Lewis
Affection provides happiness. It begins at home and then extends outward into the world in ever increasing circles. Throw a stone into a lake and watch the ripples traveling outward. Throw an affectionate smile into a group of people and you will find similar results. Today, on Valentine’s Day, instead of confining all of your affection to one place, go forth and share it with everyone you meet. All it takes is a bright demeanor and…and, yes, a smile to share.
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz
I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis.
My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site johnschulzauthor.com publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment.
I write an article a week for my blog, johntheplantman.com which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden.
I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills.
I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks.
