I have it also. And I listened to the song years ago when I was going through a lot of stressful events. It kept me hanging on.

Thanks Lyn

Lyn,

I still have a record player and records. A ton of them. All the good old music. I like a lot of the music now, but can't just go out and buy all of the time. So When I need a change, I just get the old turntable going. LOL...

Hugs, Karen

Take care

I was so happy to find a site that had it so I could share. I thought about writing it out, but it is long. I am also happy that you found it appropriate to share with others.

hugs, Karen

Thank you I've always loved Desiderata. It interesting that nobody knows who actually wrote it, it was found written on the wall of a 16th century church ( or so I believe).

I had heard it was written by monks in the 16th century. Or was it in the 1600's. Anyhow that is all that I know about it.
