I don't know about you
but I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed with our world lately
in a country where we're pretty darn good at being unbreakable
it seems things are a bit shaky.
So how do we change that?

"Sprinkle life with a little silliness."
Turn off the news.

Invite your friends over for a glass of wine and a good read
for National Relaxation Day
which was on Tuesday.

"I remember a friend of mine
 years ago who taped a sign to his refrigerator.

"There's a dream dreaming us."
If you try to think what that means
it makes your mind silly,
but that silliness is good."
Natalie Goldberg

If you're lucky you'll dream that dream in living full color!

Feeling blue or out of sorts?
Well then,

Celebrate you and go to a spa!
Or better yet, have a spa party. 


"It's okay to be absurd, ridiculous, and down right irrational
at times;
silliness is sweet syrup that helps us
swallow the bitter pills of life."
Richelle E. Goodrich

Take a walk!

"Play around.
Dive into absurdity and write.
Take chances.
You will succeed if you are fearless of failure."
Natalie Goldberg

Mini-golf is way better than 18 holes,
 on a gigantic course right?!
Oh yeah.

Dirt on your knees is always a sign of great fun
(In the dirt!)

Make your best funny smile,
show your cute little tongue or
just smile!

Outdoor movies are the best!
Always a Yogi the Bear cartoon first.
Hurry up take your seat the movie will begin in two minutes.

Of course not everyone wants to see the movie when they

can sip wine!

Look for the heart in everything. It's there.

Silly is as silly does
but in your heart of hearts

let your sunshine and silliness sing wildly!

Enjoy your evening and the weekend is almost here!

Just keep being not broken.

Yes. This world is so scary. But, you are right. We need to find the fun, find the heart, and live with both. Thank you, my friend. HUGS.

There is ALWAYS room for silliness, colour and whimsy in my world. Thank you for the splash you so generously provided.

Goodonyer, Karen! You are right, things do seem a little messy. What worries is me is when people of reason, but of differing views, can't get on; long-term, I'm less concerned about the nutters like Isis and the KKK - they are on the fringes of humanity and they do need to be beaten and broken. But I think folk of good heart will prevail. Loved your post - so positive! And you're right - we need fun. And maybe a few beers - so I need to go now...
