Saturday Edition of Five Friday Happy Bringers (7/26/13)

1.  Being under the weather yesterday (thus the delay in my usual happy bringers on Friday) and really affirming, professing, confessing and believing the truthfulness of this great affirmation:  My body knows how to be well and is always moving toward wellness.”

2.  After reading the article below, deciding that I want to (and believe I can) win several Gold Medals in Track and Field at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio:

3.  Realizing my blog is no longer necessary because soap does it better:

5.  Taking my summer quarter English 193 Composition for International Students class for a terrific docent-led tour of the SCAD Museum of Art.  I have students from China, Taiwan, South Korea, Bolivia, Hong Kong, Brazil, and Panama.
