And perhaps listen to Tom Waits reading Charles Bukowski's poem 'The Laughing Heart'. It's downbeat upbeat and about as positive as I can manage today. Thankyou Simon Bestwick for this recommendation.
The original poem can be found in Betting on the Muse: Poems and Stories (1996) but here's the text:
One day soon I promise I'll try the Grown Ass Woman Soda, Lauren... But for now, where's my hot Ribena?
