Happy Thoughts – Poetry Prose Day”The Quiet World”

Hello! It’s poetry prose day. Today I found a great poem  from the Poetry Foundation called “The Quiet World” by Jeffrey McDaniel. It’s a good one for us Twitter generation peeps!

The Quiet World

By McDaniel, Jeffrey

In an effort to get people to look

into each other’s eyes more,

and also to appease the mutes,

the government has decided

to allot each person exactly one hundred   

and sixty-seven words, per day.

When the phone rings, I put it to my ear   

without saying hello. In the restaurant   

I point at chicken noodle soup.

I am adjusting well to the new way.

Late at night, I call my long distance lover,   

proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.   

I saved the rest for you.

When she doesn’t respond,

I know she’s used up all her words,   

so I slowly whisper I love you

thirty-two and a third times.

After that, we just sit on the line   

and listen to each other breathe.

Here’s today’s  recording of the poem!

Happy Thoughts- Beer and Crisps please

via Photo Challenge: A Good Match

 

What’s my idea of a good match? It can be lots of things…fashion, jewellery spirituality… but some of my best adventures have been down at the pub with my husband, or with friends. And what do we start off with? As CAMRA members, it has to be real ale. And what to soak it up with? Yummy ready salted or cheese and onion crisps.

a-good-match

Just for general information CAMRA, The Campaign for Real Ale is an independent voluntary consumer organisation headquartered in St Albans, England, which promotes real ale, real cider and the traditional British pub.

The old pubs give us such  a feeling of warmth and friendship. Even if it’s our first visit to the establishment we can feel welcomed and at home. Sometimes in winter there’s a fire going and then it’s time to put in the first round of drinks and crisps. Even when there’s just two of us we take turns buying rounds. When there are more in the group, that’s fab too…conversation, jokes, bonding and friendship. Many of hubby’s and my important discussions – like where to holiday,business plans, goals and dreams – have taken place down at the pub over ale and crisps.

Stopping by a London pub sometimes in the evening for a swift half, and one doesn’t want to spoil the dinner that will come later…what does one snack on…beer/lager/ale and crisps! 😀

So many good vibes attached, that why I chose this as a perfect match…ale and crisps!

Happy Thoughts – Appreciation

rq-buddha-picsay.jpg.jpeg

Every day I read a bit from a book that I find quite inspirational, Dr Wayne Dyer’s Everyday Wisdom for Success.

There’s always something in there to inspire me. I like to have a look at it on my Kindle every morning when I wake up.

One of the messages that really stood out for me is this one:

To achieve success in all areas,shift your consciousness to an appreciation for all you are and all that you’re blessed to have.

Gratitude is so important. Even for the small things that we might overlook and think of as ‘nothing special’. I like to keep a gratitude journal and write at least 3 good things that have happened to me…sometimes more.You’ll see that life isn’t so bad. There’s always something good going on.. we just have to be open, aware and find it.

I did a little podcast about it. Have a listen!

Happy Thoughts-Oracle Cards for the Week

This morning I had a feeling to read some cards for us to get our week off to a great start; so I did! I used the Keepers of the Light deck by Kyle Gray.

The two questions I asked were: 1. How can we get this week off to a good start? and 2. What do we need to know or do?

The cards that came up were first, Lord Shiva-Transcendence, Rise Up-Steps are being given. The card that came up for the second question was Holy Amethysr-Divine Alchemy-Move beyond current challenges and focus on what we want.

Good cards, considering we’re well on the way to Spring — but not there yet…new growth,new ideas, moving onwards and upwards.We’re moving through times of transition and things will be clearer from this point, bur we must also be vigilant and focus on what we desire rather than what we fear.Send that energy out in the right direction!

Today’s podcast is a recording of our reading. I talk for a wee bit  about the meaning of the cards and some of the colours that are used in the artwork. Have a listen!
