Think Can Do!

   A few  days ago, I watched on Disney Channel (fortunately free and open for everybody since last summer) a Warner animation film titled The Easter Bunny Is Coming To Town (1977) which has the legendary Fred Astaire as narrator. There's a very constructive scene I liked very much and now, by creating this tale, I tell you my own way.

   Once upon a time, there was in a little village, near a little barn, where three yellow hens lived, a mouldy rusty old locomotive which felt sad and had oblivion as his best warehouse-mate. One day an easter bunny with some friends of him arrived at that place and while they were walking along the countryside, they heard a series of moans coming from an old warehouse. They ran over there to see who was inside and couln't believe what they were seeing, a locomotive!, a locomotive which was crying!. The easter bunny immediately understood what was going on and had a great idea, he asked the locomotive to take them to the town as in that way they wouln't be late for carrying the easter eggs to all the children who lived there. The locomotive said that it was permanently impossible as she could hardly open her eyes because of the rust, the cobwebs and the mould, and anyway she didn't feel she could ever start again. As the bunny insisted and insisted, and even the three neighbour yellow hens came to insist her too, the locomotive gave in and let them fix and paint her in joyful colours. However, despite she was really ready for a try, she kept on saying as before that she couldn't and so repeated once and once again. One of the three yellow hens suddenly started to sing "All you've got to do is think can do...". Immediately, the other two yellow hens started to sing too, the same thing the easter bunny did and also the friends who came with him. The locomotive got so amazed by such a beautiful melody that powerful words began to come out of her mouth. She couldn't stop saying  "I can do, I can do, I can do...", and the words seemed to be stronger and stronger and powerful till she started to move and to work perfectly, as new!. Everybody, even the locomotive, got so happy with excitement that in a jiffy all together got to town, and the children had a lot of fun and joy with the easter eggs.

   But what's the moral of the story? Whatever you have to do don't forget the following: All You've Got To Do Is... Think Can Do!

I had a long paragraph describing your blog, because as you said it covers so many topics, but the post was getting so long I tried to sum it up so folks would come here and see for themselves.

Keep writing!
