Simple Things

As my blog 'Moon-O-Verse' grows, I am learning new things, meeting new people and perhaps adjusting the focus of what I planned to write about. Today, while reading 'May All Things Be Sweet to Thee', I started thinking about the post. Dawn, the author, had written an earlier piece called 'Happy 101' and asked her readers to list what things made them happy. I did start a list, but it never became a part of any post. This time, I thought I should follow through, especially because of Dawn's note on the bottom:

"...visit soul aperture to read her simple things, and see links to other bloggers who are sharing their simple things today. and please, post your simple things, too. for every 'simple things' post, christina will donate $1 to a good cause in tragedy-struck haiti. "

I started the list before heading over to soul aperature and was delighted to find another good blog, and apparently, someone who also appreciates all things Jamaican. As my Mom used to say, "How serendipitous!" ...and in her memory, that's the first thing on my list...
*Red Stripes ~Candy canes, American flags, Barber shops, festival tents, Red Stripe Jamaican beer~
*APT 9 Modal Cotton Socks
*Hearing the word “Nana”
*Fish Lights
*Taste of cinnamon
*Scent of lavender
*The sound of ocean waves gently lapping on the beach
*Pink ink
*BFFs Teddy & Gretel
*Hearing “It’s My Delight” by the Melodians
*Butterfly Kisses
*When my eyes burn from reading, painting, sewing or working way too long on the computer, my husband, without my asking, puts soothing cool fingers on my eyelids, like peek-a-boo bandaids.
*Finding things after saying prayers to St. Anthony for things I’ve lost (like this list) (Thanks, Tony)
I am going to come back to this and edit some photos in it. But all in good time. I'm rushing to be included in this 'project'. But even if the goal's already been met, this has been a really good exercise, for my heart, mind and soul. How serendipitous, indeed! Thank you Dawn and Christina!

Isn't this idea of Christina's such fun? I love how many of us are roaming the blogroads stopping to say hello here and there. So, hello to you. Happy almost-Friday.

So many kind words in the place that used to be for 'comments' Other posts had the word 'Comments' changed to 'LADLEFULS OF LOVE' or 'STREAMS OF CONCIOUSNESS'. I didn't realize I had such an option, til I checked. Comments are now 'PEACES OF MIND'. Inspired by yours, brought to mine. Thank you!
