it's been a long time......

GFW's Poetry Gallery.   (Written by an unknown child in a Nazi death camp)   From tomorrow on I shall be sad, From tomorrow on. Not today, Today I will be glad. And every day, no matter how bitter it may be. I shall say: From tomorrow on I shall be sad, Not today.  Painting: Larry Hoffman: Anything I write will make me seem mean, petty, and generally not very nice.  So, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything.  Instead I'll share one of my favorite poems, memorized way back in college where it was part of a art piece entitled "Holocaust" hanging on the wall of the student union. It is attributed to a child in a Nazi death camp.  If a child can write this under those circumstances, I can certainly make it through today.

I was wondering where you were!
I always say, one way or another, this too shall pass.
