Five Friday Happy Bringers — 11/14/14

Sometimes (especially when you’re in education and the end of a very busy term is near), all you need for Friday to be happy is, well, for it to be Friday.

But here’s a handful of other reasons for me.

1.  Spyro, my quite friendly “granddog.”

2.  An incredible array of “Visual Essays,” created by my first-year students at SCAD.  As I explained in a recent post, after we read two books, The Alchemist and Happier, the students created/made an essay rather than writing it.  Here’s one such project, titled The Real Alchemist, by Douglas De Carvalho Martins Silva from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

3.  The simple, delicious beauty of fall.

4.  Beach mornings.

5.  Hot, running water.

Let’s all follow Victor’s advice and be Real Alchemists this weekend by creating some joy for ourselves and others.
