Excerpt

This book represents 20 years of recording all the little things that make me happy. Beginning in the sixth grade with a tiny spiral notebook, I graduated to larger notebooks and finally to a personal computer that today contains more than a million bytes' worth of word-pictures. Words, and the images they create, can be a great source of pleasure and inspiration. Sometimes, on a gray day, I flip through this collection to cheer myself up; often I use it to get ideas about what to cook for dinner or something fun to do with my son on the weekend.

As you read through these pages, give yourself time to conjure up your own images--to reminisce, wish, and dream. I hope you will find, as I did, that happiness comes from noticing and enjoying the little things in life.

A stream-of-consciousness list

pajamas at breakfast

reed-fringed lagoons

seeing the moon rise

the feel of a rug under bare feet

sweet fresh corn and tender baby green lima beans, drenched with cream

the "snuggle right in" feeling

a lake catching the last flecks of sunlight coming in over the pines

the position of your head as you bite into a taco

shadows cast by shutters against shiny white walls

Who can't use a little reminder of how many little things make life wonderful? I sure can, and this book is a great little reminder. Of course, there are many more things to be happy about--but this book provides a great starting point. Once you start to look at the little things that bring joy, your mind begins to find them everywhere. This book is great for anyone bogged down by life's troubles.
