P1060923What does an antique typewriter have to do with Nostalgia?

Last week, I visited the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck Nova Scotia Canada when I saw this type writer in a display case.

I peered to see what was written on the paper and was amazed to find the poem ‘The Psalm of Life’ (faded print)….


My mother knows this poem by heart and has recited it on several occasions to encourage me to face life. Seeing this type writer and especially the poem reminded me of my mother who is the strongest woman I have known in my life.

Here is the poem for those of you who would like to read it.

  1. How wonderful. I never read the before. I heard it today and it brought tears to my eyes. I made my kiddo hear it too. Thanks a bunch for sharing!! That’s why we must share, because you never know how it may impact someone who is reading or listening to it. I was somewhat gloomy because of the trying times I am going through but reading this poem has encouraged me.
