I spent some time volunteering at a local hospital's "Wellness Center" today, helping people on chemotherapy, in need of bone marrow transplants or other blood work, to feel better.
I met Bobo the Medical clown after helping a little girl to paint a picture (he usually wears a silly pink hat and tie, though his official photo looks rather serious)
and chatting with a woman who enjoys good jokes.
I can't cure anybody, but doctors know that happier people make more curable patients. Helping someone to smile is the major achievement of my efforts
