It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Finding happiness

Things that make me happy....,
A beautiful flower...

Sunlight on a cold day.

Chickens....,
a rooster crowing.

The sound of coyotes at night.....
An owl hooting in a nearby oak tree.
A small verbal greeting from a goat....

Grandchildren
laughing.
..., laughing with friends.
The sparkle filled feeling
that laughter leaves inside of you.

Finding something
unexpected.

Clean sheets.....,
drying outside.
Wind....
blowing leaves around.
Seeing the sunrise every morning.

...and flowers that make fireworks.
