ELVIS PRESLEY-SOLITAIRE  *******I don’t care who you are, inarguably, Elvis was a great performing artist.  This is a great song of his about a man that has resigned himself to live his life playing solitaire instead of expressing his love for others.  Many of us have had depressing times, but I’ve found it is much easier to crawl out of the darkness when you don’t isolate yourself.  You do yourself more harm than good by suffering in silence.  In the past, I’ve had days where I didn’t want to see anyone, but needed to go to the store for sustenance.  That little dose of sunshine, friendly “hello” and smile from the cashier gave me the boost I needed to get through the day.  Have a great day everyone!*******
