So here it is Thursday again. I’ll be doing #ThursThreads on Siobhan Muir’s site. I love participating in the weekly flash fiction. It’s fun. It’s productive. It’s challenging. It makes me happy. Writing makes me happy. Even when it makes me unhappy. There’s not a whole lot I’d rather be doing. Reading. Reading makes me very happy. I’m getting ready to dive into UP WISH CREEK, B.E. Sanderson’s latest in her Djinn series. Jo makes me happy. (That’s her main character.)
So anyway, I’m just going to be little Merry Sunshine today. Because… Well, just because. The world is a pretty crappy place right now. In the grand scheme of things, there’s not a whole lot I can do to change that, but I can do something. I can write stories people want to read. I read stories written by people I like. I can watch my hummingbirds and check out the morning glories and feed the feral cats. I can smile and laugh, and I can look a little closer because…
Every single minute of every single day, they’re there, Silver.
They may be hidden behind circumstances, people, or light poles. Challenges, closed doors, or lost keys. Camouflaged, dovetailed, or whispering. Purring, kissing, or hissing. But more often than not they’re lying about in the open, under a clear blue sky, in plain view. Absolutely. Guaranteed. You’d throttle me otherwise.
10,000 reasons to be happy.
