I LOVE strolling in my Savannah Historic District neighborhood during any season of the year.  But, oh my, Spring!

(Honest opinion.  Don’t I look a little like an old, white Pharrell?)

Five Friday Happy Bringers — 3/ 27/15

hw2

It’s the LAST Friday in March.  Really!  Here are a few reasons I’m hunkering down with Happiness.  What about you?  Tell me!

1.  Enjoying a short visit with my parents up in Ball Ground (North Georgia) this week.  Dad’s 91, mom’s 87.  This September they will have been married 71 years!

2.  Going down to Jacksonville’s Times-Union Center to see a theatrical production of I Love Lucy.

5.  Embracing the necessity and obligation of throwing away/letting go from time to time.

Small Boy

He picked up a pebble and threw it into the sea.

And another, and another. He couldn’t stop.

He wasn’t trying to fill the sea. He wasn’t trying to empty the beach.

He was just throwing away, nothing else but.

Like a kitten playing he was practicing for the future

When there’ll be so many things he’ll want to throw away

If only his fingers will unclench and let them go.

— from The Poems of Norman MacCaig (Birlinn, 2009)

But don’t throw away your joy this weekend!

 

A Life

I love this short video which illustrates the journey and ultimate brevity of life.  I encourage you to take a moment and watch it.

For, really, we are all her.
