"Life knows no limitations in expressing itself beautifully."

(Happy Musings is a newspaper feature syndicated by King Features that I create each day to remind us all that “Life is wonderful!”  I offer it here to brighten your day.  Please share it with your friends.)  HMT20061211 Everywhere you look you can find something beautiful. 

I walk to work each morning from a little cottage 8 blocks from my gallery.  Along the way I get to see the most beautiful roses.  I smell the roses, admire their colors and thoroughly appreciate them.  I don’t know if anyone else smells these flowers or notices them except as a blur when they drive by.  But I do and I know the flowers appreciate the attention.  Why else are they here but to be beautiful.   

Sometimes when I walk home I walk along a path on the side of a hillside that borders the ocean.  The view is magnificent, especially at twilight.  Pelicans sit below on white rocky outcroppings from the hill.  They are equally magnificent as await the falling sun.  It is peaceful except for the sounds of the seagulls hurrying to the beach nearby.  They line up to honor the setting sun as well. 

I am lucky to have so much beauty around me.  I hope you have beauty in your life too. 



“Life is wonderful! Don’t forget it.” 

I would like to add you to my friends’ list.  Please make a comment if you like.  I am trying to connect with as many like-minded people as possible.
