November 22, 2015, Prescott- This is the last day of Positivity Week, and I have been asked to mention those people and things in my life which make me smile.
So, in no particular order: My students, and hearing them sing and struggle with the winter song that is associated with the coming holidays. I know they will sound just fine, with practice, by concert time.
The antics of teens in the neighbourhood Skate Park. They have mastered some moves that I would look frightful doing, and they do nothing wrong, while there.
“Peanuts”, and other such remnants of the days when childhood was indeed a world apart. I know the teacher is made to look non-existent, but that’s part of the allure.Mission Inn
Pets, and their silliness. The love of an animal keeps a lot of people sane, who would otherwise be underwater, emotionally.
The ambiance of places like Prescott, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Tucson, at this time of year. Even Riverside, CA will command a stop, when I head back here from San Diego, next Sunday. Mission Inn has a legendary holiday display. Our Courthouse Square, though, sets the mould.
The cards I am getting, in advance of my hexagenarian midpoint. I am always grateful for those who help me “ring in” my personal New.
Positivity Week is now drawing to a close, but a positive spirit need never do so.
