Yesterday I read about 365 Days of Grateful. A case of 'wish I'd thought of that'! This woman took a polaroid shot every day of something she was grateful for. Her photography is retro blissful so it worked better than you can imagine.
I want a project! I've thought about putting all this blogging into some kind of book. I try to picture what this book would look like, full of photos, drawings, scribbles... some kind of inspiration kit - or just personal entry point into my mind... and heart... or are books out of date? A waste of trees? Or it is worth taking my cyber-space into a form? Any ideas for what this book by me could be?
But for today I'll just reflect on some things I was grateful for. I've at least learnt one thing in life - that gratefulness is the purest form of happiness. It's pushed outward and then turns inwards. Try it.
It rained all night. It's pouring! Aptly, other aspects of my life are 'pouring' too.
I awoke to a flattering text or two.
Having my first tea out of one of my new tea cups inspired a tea party with 5 courses of tea each in a different set up cups and accompanied with appropriate nibblies.
I filmed a group of kids with down syndrome who are putting on a performance of 'The Wiz'. It was the first day of making a little documentary of their journey. I got lots of hugs and some great moments on camera.
On the way home I picked up 2 pineapples outside a farm. Gobbled one up with friends.
I stored my scarf on a small boy. He looked so cute I decided he'd be good babysitting material.
I temporarily lost a thong on the windy sandstorm beach and then the other took flight and I watched someone get their daily exercise trying to catch it.
I was given lots of ideas and inspiration for my travels to India at the end of the year.
[current mood] Breakfast tomorrow & The Music Paris Just Gave Me ;)
