1. Upon hearing that I was *really* tired this morning, my yoga teacher chose to lead the class through a slightly easier routine than usual. We got to do more flexibility poses and fewer balancing ones – which felt terrific in my body.
2. Leaving the city, I saw a young aspiring ballerina getting professional pictures taken in various urban settings. The contrast of a ballerina on pointe against a steel bridge was pretty darn interesting.
3. Seeing my new slippers, my sweetie asked me what happened to my old ones. When I told him, “They got a hole in them,” he responded, “Oh that’s very sad, dear Liza, dear Liza, oh that’s very sad, dear Liza, that’s sad” – to which I laughed out loud. Nearly every day my husband makes at least one of these completely unexpected random-yet-relevant comments – and they all make me smile. His kooky, creative mind is a wonder to me…
(P.S. If you want an evening of smiles, just search for “Sesame Street” on YouTube. Adult humor neatly packaged for children; this cast and crew were decades ahead of their time…)
