Five Friday Happy Bringers 3/31/23

My weekly gratitude journal, of sorts.

1. Finishing with Robert perhaps one of the top three novels we’ve read together in the last ten years …

Oh my goodness, it’s hilarious, heartwarming, heartbreaking, a mystery, a treatise on our economy and banking system, a love story/love stories, an examination of the inevitably difficult dynamics of family. And a book FULL of surprises. I did not want it to end. I miss the characters. I highly recommend it!

What a joy to read a good book.

2. The 2023 Savannah Music Festival.

What a treat! Last night Robert and I went to a bluegrass event with incredible banjoes, fiddles and guitars.

(Just so you know, I played trombone in high school. Okay, I was 3rd chair. And I really never managed to march on the football field and play my instrument at the same time. But still.)

3. Air. Oxygen. Breath.

4. HR finally learning how to photograph me now that I’m 71.

5. This morning walking past my favorite old Savannah mansion which faces Forsyth Park.

May your weekend’s peace and joy be of mansion proportions.

  1. Great book! I agree, mainly because it pointed out how everyday people (yes even imaginary characters) deal with an undercurrent of “anxiety” daily and how we help each other negotiate our inner struggles.

    I love bluegrass music and meeting new friends!

  2. Bachman is one of myfavorite authors. I saw him speak in the town near us a few years ago .He has a great sense of humor and is remarkably honest about how he has felt about becoming famous. He is also a staunch defender of women. It was a marvelous evening.
