As I go through my day, I watch for moments when the corners of mouth turn up and my heart lifts. I note these moments of delight, capture them in my Journal and log them here. I encourage you to be on the lookout for your Delight of the Day.
Plunged into shock and grief at the news of my brother-in-law’s suicide, it has been a tender week. I am especially conscious of and treasuring each thread of affection and shimmer of beauty in my life.
Connected with my writers’ group friends and with the comfort of poetry.
Received special hugs and tender looks at church.
Was struck by the beauty of a pattern of shadows and light on the sidewalk.
Happened upon a plein air painter when I was out for a walk and had a conversation about the visual richness of nature.
Escaped into an online writing class.
Soothed my soul with Claude Boling’s Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano Trio
May you find delight each day.
