Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

I Was Just Talking About Happiness and Hair

Napa Wine Valley by: Lombardi
When I close my eyes this is where I go.
To the neatly patterned browns and collard greens,
and   blurred crimsons and sun kissed hues of this masterpiece,
I succumb. Lost; come find me.
I am given to much dreaming I suppose.

Half past midnight the other night, my husband had the distinct pleasure of being the lone audience to my chatter on the - wisdom - of - life. My life. (hehehe!) That he was apparently tired ( just a little bit) ) escaped me. What can I do? One must be a vessel of insight when the inspiration assaults!

I talked about "happiness" and how we, the people, of the earth, complicate and struggle to snag it. Verbosity floats out there. Happiness can be an online lesson, read between pages, lectured up on stage, preached at the pulpit, sang, planted and painted. As if one must be particularly skilled.

Or, happiness might be a resort valley you save up (plus,VISA) to vacation to. Happiness. So foreign in its someday. So if. So when. Faraway.

Look into people's eyes and you might see in degrees the play for someday. Someday I'll be happy, when I've arrived and if I have it!  Someday. If. When. Words detrimental to sanity.

The waking up in the morning, the coffee, the day's trade, callanetics, the grass,  the misunderstanding, the laughing, the being silly, the afternoon sunlight, coffee conversations, the deadline, the regurgitating cat, the angry word, the rude, the miscalculated risk, the stupid nonsense, cheap chocolate, tempranillo, the getting sick, the being surprised, the procrastinating, the exulting, the insulting, the forgiving,  latte with fattening whipped cream  and cluelessness...( all the other darn industry of life left unsaid ) - they and those and them are IT!

Happiness unadulterated is truly quite a fortune! The good, the bad, the ugly, the sexy, the whatever of now, rim it with your own brand of silver lining IS happiness. We simply take responsibility. 

For a year I wore my hair quite long. 
A week ago I cut it. By my own self, yes I did! Easy
Snip and snip and it was all done. 

" There is always a question in your mind about something, and there is always an answer gift wrapped in the moments of your life."

~ Neale Donald Walsch

More on my happiness today:
Happiness I look forward to:

  • My new batch of corporate folks to teach.
  • Writing a good poem. It will come.
  • Painting something pretty.
  • A new friend. I don't know who, but there will be. There always is.


  1. May happiness always be with you! :-)

    In these parts, spring has arrived, a font of joy and happiness.
