This morning I’m marveling at how the “little things” we encounter in daily life can sometimes bring sudden bursts of joy to us.
“Close Encounters of the Little Kind”
A couple of weeks ago Robert and I were up near Monticello, NY and took a little walk. “Look, Neal!” he excitedly pointed, with a little too much morning verve for me. At first all I saw was a tree with splotchy marks on it, but getting closer I saw it … him … Mr. Tree!
And somehow Mr. Tree brought unexpected but welcome joy to our morning walk.
What little thing have you noticed lately that brought a smile or an “aww/awe” to your life?
Definitely marveling. This past Friday, Grandson Daniel opened for a three-weekend run as Joseph in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” production at the Savannah Children’s Theater.
This is a great experience for Daniel. The play is the theatre’s 2022 MainStage production, meaning there are adult, teen and child actors involved. Daniel just turned 15, and some of his adult costars in “Joseph” are professionals, brought in for the show, so he has really been learning from their expertise.
“Close every door to me, Hide all the world from me Bar all the windows And shut out the light…”
I look handsome, I look smart I am a walking work of art Such a dazzling coat of many colors How I love my coat of many colors
