Pure Joy

I was trudging through snow drifts and slush puddles today with a frown on my face, my hands jammed in my pockets and my shoulders hunched forward. As I crossed Park Avenue, I heard children laughing and squealing with excitement as they ran full tilt toward Central Park with their sleds tucked under their arms. As they passed me, I looked up and saw the sun shining and I started to smile. My shoulders relaxed, my frown melted away and I couldn’t help but laugh. Seeing this probably helped too!

The sight of those children and the tower of snow-covered cans reminded me to appreciate the little joys and to savor the pure happiness that can be felt while catching snowflakes on my tongue. Happy snow day!

Hello, World!

Oh boy. Somehow restarting/reincarnating my blog seemed like it would be so easy and would happen so seamlessly. Does anything in life happen that way? Silly me. Besides, I think I pretty well exhausted my creative muscles after writing my new “About” section so why don’t you read that for now? In the meantime, I’m going to finish getting my thoughts organized, get some pictures cleaned up, and savor this comforting and delicious bowl of homemade chicken soup, courtesy of my father-in-law.

I’m so glad to be back and I hope you have a wonderful day!
