That Which Brings Me Great Joy

  1. β€’
    Watching two old Japanese men laugh.
  2. β€’
    When Missy (my dog) is at the end of the bed waiting for me to wake up and I lean in to her, whisper "breakfast?" and she goes ballistic and licks my face in appreciation.
  3. β€’
    Seeing big ass pelicans sitting atop of the light posts along the river and freeway.
    HOW INCREDIBLE! This is one of 'my' pelicans! As regrammed by Instagram! A Canning Highway pelican! I pass this exact beautiful beast, which brings me great joy, on the weekly! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜Š
  4. β€’
    When I'm walking briskly (or running) and my ponytail has a mad swing to it.
  5. β€’
    When a young child reads a story out loud.
  6. β€’
    reading the margin notes my Dad wrote in his Deepak Chopra books
    Dad relied heavily on DC's work during his 7 year battle with brain cancer. These have my heart every time.

    singing unapologetically in the shower (me or others!)
    Extra joy for hitting those high notes! 🎢
