Sitting outside in the golden late evening sun, listening to my neighbor next door play acoustic classic rock songs on his guitar.

When my son tells me about how his stomach feels floppy and he doesn't know what to say when he sees a certain one of his female friends, so he just does funny things to make her laugh. He's 6.

Local growing concern for the environment and the volunteers who organize and participate in the clean up events.

The amount of good energy I feel lately. Physically (as in waking up earlier, ready to move and having that last all day. well most days...) and Spiritually (as in a constant abundance of love and gratitude).  

Inspiration and creativity in it's many, sometimes surprising forms.

Do I put that in the "compassionate" category?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

  • you want to know the answer? Hell, I'm still working on the question!

Posted 13 July 2013 - 10:03 PM

1 -Waking up next to my beautiful wife

2 - Watching our pet rabbit chase our cat.

3 - Finishing a paint job on a model and liking the result.

4 - Hearing the pride in my daughters voice when she tells me her latest triumph

5 - Finding out that my grand-nephew thinks of me as a role model.

No particular order, and I have more, but you said 5.

Why not tell us more? I love to be reminded of all the beautiful things in life, some so small & inconsequential that we often aren't even aware of them. Like for me, a friend & I visit the fish pond where we work and feed the fish. We never get tired of seeing all the little fishies darting around after the food, it always makes us happy. I keep a picture of my granddaughter on my desk, so that I always have that small pleasure of looking at her beautiful face whenever I want. Or the sound of a train whistle late at night. Seeing a shooting star. Ripe cherries. Cutting a flowers from my yard for a bouquet.

  • There's nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough

Posted 14 July 2013 - 04:12 AM

This thread deserves more attention :tu:

1. Those little moments when the most random of things makes you laugh hysterically and everyone looks at you like your crazy lol
2.That feeling you get when you finally see someone you missed for the longest time
3. Having the closest friends in the world
4. Having faith in someone when they don't even have faith in themselves, and then they prove you right
5. Those rare moment when you realize everything you were worrying about doesn't really matter at all

Okay, random happy thoughts it is.

1 - the smell of fresh ground coffee.

2 - stepping out of the house and coming face to face with a doe and her fawns.

3 - the sound that my brook makes after a rainstorm as it flows over the rocks.

4 - listening to the sounds of cool jazz while working on my latest project.

5 - catching up on the latest news from my friends.

6 - watching the mist rise off the mountains nearby.

7 - finding a twenty dollar bill in my wallet.

8 - the aroma of my wife's potroast filling the house

9 - watching women walk by

10 - seeing a rainbow

11 - thunder storms

12 - snowy days when the snow falls straight, and all sounds seem to disappear.

13 - foggy days

14 - becoming totally absorbed in a good book

15 - my goofball cat 'allowing' me to pet him, as if he is doing me a favor  :)

16 - lazy sundays

17 - waking up, late for work, and then realizing it's my day off.

And that's all I can think of at the moment.  But there are more.
