    It’s Steinbeck you want, or possibly Bob Service.

    I think of scratching as reducing pain as opposed to causing pleasure.

    I just want to hear someone say “a happy little tree” every once in a while.

    I’m more in the line of “If it’s worth doing at all, it’s worth doing well” (and so we should prioritize things that are worth doing well !)

    A scratch, burp and a fart, is the happy trifecta that makes me smile!

    Earl, I’m sure Goethe had that “I’m forgetting something feeling” as he was writing that.

    Go Comics are to me fine pictures, good poetry and the commentary, mostly, reasonable words. How do we find a song in all this?

    When you’re in public, don’t be afraid of scratching where it itches.

    Could I add a few? A hot cuppa, first thing in the Morning. Hear a great old song on the radio. Sit in the sun, for a bit.

    Anyone else?

    A lot of it depends on where the scratch is.

    To quote Ogden Nash, the Baltimore Bard:

    A joy for which there is no match\ Is when you itch, to up and scratch.

    To which I say, Amen.
