    Things that please you

    So many things annoy so many people in Mesfalcon's thread, but 'Let's forget about the whying and the crying, the shooting and the dying and the fellow with the switch-blade knife, let's think about love, let's think about life'. A thread for all those positive things in life that make us smile and feel good.

    For starters;
    Small children riding on their Dad's shoulders.

    Smooth peanut butter.

    Baroque music.

    Jimmy Hendrix, the ex- paratrooper, playing 'The Star spangled banner' and celebrating his personal love for his country, rather than the 'approved' form.

    Graduates throwing their mortar boards in the air.
    A new story

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    A bit cliche but...

    The sound of laughter coming from my son and 'soon to be' step son.

    Hearing an old favorite song on the radio.

    Finally getting the words to fall into their proper places.
    “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.” -Carl Sagan

    Real courage is found, not in the willingness to risk death, but in the willingness to stand, alone if necessary, against the ignorant and disapproving herd. --Jon Roland, 1976

    Hello Olly

    For starters:

    Crunchy peanut butter.

    The Uniroyal Raintire commercial.

    Carly Simon and James Taylor singing Mockingbird live.

    Watching a golden eagle swoop over my tent at fifty feet.

    Listening to a Spitfire roar across the sky at 1500 feet.

    Flying a glider upside down over the Arizona desert.

    The Northern Lights.

    Thanks for starting a great thread.

    All the best with your writing.

    Driving with the roof off.

    The sound of a cat's purr.

    The sound of my husband (that's so much fun to say) sleeping.

    The sound of my step-daughter sleeping.

    Belly laughs.

    Church bells.


    Sunrises and sunsets.

    The moon.

    At this moment Ams it is seeing your smile on your avatar. Was that taken at your wedding? Beautiful, just beautiful.
    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    It was taken right before the courthouse opened. We had to get out of the car shortly after because it started to rain. We were in our wedding clothes. Being practical people we didn't see the need to have to go home and change for a ceremony that lasted less than twenty minutes. It was a fun day.

    hardy laughter

    Watching children's surprised face when they first see a magic trick

    Rain when its sunny outside

    new adventures!

    So many things
    Gestalt Prayer
    I do my thing
    and you do your thing.
    I am not in this world
    to live up to your expectation
    And you are not in this world
    to live up to mine

    You are you and I am I
    And If by chance
    we find each other, its beautiful,
    If not, it can't be helped.

    - Fritz Perls

    The yip-yip from a coyote on a moon-lit night
    The warm handshake with a friend
    cornbread muffins warm from the oven w/ real butter
    holding a newborn baby in your arms
    watching our three Chi puppies playing "chase" in our backyard
    watching and listening to a fly-over of sandhill cranes
    "Put not your trust not in princes, in the children of men,
    in whom there is no salvation."
    Psalm 146

    Timely, isn't it?
