1. At work, one of our colleagues commented how he owned a single record when he was a child (“We Are The World”). His recollection caused a memory from my childhood to spring into action: my sister and I laying in her bed together, listening to a recording of Henny Penny. Amazing how moments from over 30 years ago can still be so vivid – and so comforting.
2. Arriving home after work to find a surprise package at my door! Many months ago I gave a few bucks to a podcast creator (I like to support independent artists) – and he sent me a whole bundle of goodies as a thank you! Among the treats were two zines he has written, a CD of music used in his podcast, a really nice t-shirt with his podcast logo on it, a postcard containing a photo of him, his wife, and his cutie daughter, and a handwritten thank you note. Wow! How cool is all that?!
3. Seeing a segment from The Daily Show that had me laughing out loud. If you don’t mind (censored) profanity, minutes 1:40-2:35 are worth a peek (IMO). 🙂
