Look Up at the
Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes
on the grass under trees
on a summer’s day,
listening to the murmur
of the water,
or watching the clouds
float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time.
~ John Lubbock
Today’s Cloud Smiley can be found in a SMILEY BOOK OF COLORS. I hope you’ll take a peek!
Today we say happy birthday to Loretta Lynn (1932). What a gift to ears everywhere! You don’t have to love country music to love her music!
Today is also International Moment of Happiness Day. I’m thinking that at least for the USA, that should come tomorrow, you know sometime on the 15th. Right about the time you hit send and file those pesky old income taxes. Any way, in honor of International Moment of Happiness Day, here’s my recent talk about happiness. I spoke at a group called Sunday Assembly. It’s a church for atheists–all the fellowship, community service, and loving support just no deity. The idea is that it is open to everyone seeking a loving supportive community. I think it’s a lovely idea. I am always happy to see people involved in efforts to include everyone.
Give yourself permission to eat a piece of pie today for Pecan Day. If you don’t like Pecan Pie, have a different type. I won’t tell.
Check out all the different Smileys, holidays and quotes over on a Month of Smiley Silliness. There you’ll see a different Sky Smiley for Look Up at the Sky Day. You also get yet another Cloud Smiley if you subscribe to Smiley of the Day. I promise to never give your info away, to do that I’d have to know how.
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here.
