Marlane Pinkerton is a lifelong resident of Buffalo, New York.  While a graduate of Buffalo State College and the University of Buffalo School of Law,  her true calling was using her writing to help others to find the positive side of life. As the old Johnny Mercer song said. “You have to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, don’t mess with Mister-In-Between.” In an age of increasing societal negativity, we need to learn to focus on the positive of each day.
