A leaf fluttered in
through the window this morning,
as if supported by the rays of the sun,
a bird settled on the fire escape,
joy in the task of coffee,
joy accompanied me as I walked.
~ Anais Nin
Just had this funny thought. Today’s quote would also have been fitting for yesterday‘s smiley.
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness we begin the week where we are encouraged to get out there and commit Random Acts of Kindness. This week. Next week. Every week.
It’s also Thank a Punster Day. I love, love, love a pun. No way do I agree with the false assertion that a pun is a low form of humor. It takes a quick mind to think up word plays!
It is also Xray Day. I think everybody remembers seeing Xray Specs. And of course the implication that they’d work to look through people’s clothing. But surly if they can look through fabric they see right past skin to show bones and organs. I still laugh when I see those ads in comic books.
Since it is also Dance Day, I’m sharing some of my favorite songs and the invitation to click and dance and feel your mood lift. Wait a minute. Dance Day was yesterday…today, too? No complaint from me.
Today we say happy birthday to Chef Gordon Ramsey (1966), Esther Rolle (1920), and Bonnie Raitt (1949).
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Cappuccini Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
