I've already started a discussion on what we don't like....now let's talk about something lighter. Name a few things that make you happy--anything goes!

Reading a great work

The smell of the woods after it rains

Furry little animals

Wild and free animals

Being friends with people from all over the world, even in the cold wrestling state

Having a bad day, and then listening to music that slowly irons out the kinks in your soul

Reading a book or a poem with the same effect as above

Looking out of my window and seeing a little WV town, and then being able to close my eyes and see Paris

And the biggie: to be able to get through anything if I can just write about it

Sorry if I rambled a little bit

Stuff that makes me happy:
-Relaxing on my bed with dim lighting....hearing great music.
- Winning a football game or doing something great in it
- Receiving love
- Playing guitar
- Talking to my best friend Jessica
- Reading/writing poems



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

I like Saturday morning snuggles, the sound of a good thunderstorm, a hot shower on a cold day, the smell of new mown grass, the smile on my son's face when he thinks he's pulled something over on me and I catch him, the look on my husband's face when I do something totally out of character, my cat when she gives me *kitty kisses*, hot chocolate, a really good latte', and my favorite....netpoets! Even though I don't post much, I am here almost every day reading and I love it!!

How can you save me?

from my front walk and into bed,

something simple i guess

Hm, things that make me happy....

~listening to a CD I really love with the lights turned down and candles lit

~playing guitar until my fingers are so sore that I can't play anymore

~laying out in the grass on summer afternoons and looking at the clouds

~bonfires on fall nights with my family and friends

~the feeling of accomplishment when I've finished writing a song or poem

~the half hour a week I spend with my guitar teacher...pure bliss...she is one of those people that brings out the best in me

~sitting in the passenger seat of my boyfriend's car and taking the time to just watch him as he drives...

~singing....have always loved to do it

~making a new friend or rediscovering an old one

~being at one with myself and being able to appreciate and care for myself

Hmmmm....there's a lot more, now that I think of it, but that's good for now....hey this made me feel pretty good!

I may be back too....I'm sure there is more than this

Other things I like:

The sound of the motorcycle, when it starts after a long winter in the garage.

The grin on my husband's face when he gets to ride it for the first "spring ride".

The peacefulness of a clean house.

The smell of popcorn in the microwave.

The sunshine streaming through the windows in the morning.

The smell of my husband's long tail shirts that I like to lounge in.

Phone calls from friends I haven't talked to in over 15 years, and it seems like just yesterday.

I am sure there are others.....

Oh yes, and how could I forget?

Javier, you just don't know how to win a man's heart, do you? You are being far too direct.
Acire, I think that new icon makes you seem too cuddly, my friend. Even I am tempted by it...
