Happiness Project #12

1 Comment

The Happy Things Project continues.  Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. There will be repetition but Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1.   Marshmallows
After last week’s small tribute to campfires I need to mention marshmallows.  These white, soft, squishy, bouncy, pillows of deliciousness add excitement to any campfire.  They provide multiple forms of entertainment from tasty, toasted morsel to flying, flaming missile.  At only 25 calories each they pack quite a whallop of fun. 
2.  Amazing coconspirators 
I am blessed with outstanding friends spread across the world.  One is part of my Month in New Orleans Project.  He will be my traveling companion, muse, video and photograph contributor, and source of courage.  He will be able to participate for 3 weeks of the project. 
3.  Clean laundry
It is with great satisfaction that I proclaim all the laundry done, even the sheets ✅. At least for the rest this day.

Happiness Project #9

The Happy Things Project continues.  Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. I feel there will be repetition. I feel that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  I feel that even though something is a repeat, it is unique and new in them moment it occurs.  Everything changes despite what my senses may be telling me.

1.  Making videos
I’ve been working on various video projects with the 7 year old muse.

  • Skateboarding
  • The secret elephant video
  • Animation shorts

2.  Strawberry farms
I think the best strawberries I’ve ever eaten were from a farm on US 31 in Clanton AL.  The boy and I were returning from our road school adventure and saw a strawberry farm. We turned in, made our selection, and  returned to World Headquarters with a bag of delicious red delight.

3.  Occasionally overcoming the naysayer in my head.
It isn’t that I always win, but I’m trying.  I wasn’t born with the naysayer. It was learned from over cautious authority figures, critical teacher, critical peers, jealous friends, non-supportive parents, and…you get the idea.  Know where it came from helps me defeat the negative voice in my head.

Happy Things #6

The Happy Things Project continues. If things go as planned, once a week I post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. I feel there will be repetition and that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1. Spending time with the people I love
I listened to On Being with Krista Tippet, an interview with Carlo Rovelli. Part of the title was, All Reality is Interaction. One of the grains of science mentioned was, things don’t exist until they collide.  It is in the “colliding” with the ones I love and the ones who love me that I thrive.  Don’t misunderstand, I need vast amounts of solitude too. 
2. Daylight Savings Time: Springing forward and longer days
It is so nice to have more day time in the evening.  It’s nice to have more daylight hours in general. 
3.  I got to spend another weekend working with friends on their treehouse. It is fun watching the progress.  I think it’s painted barn red now.
