Have you ever wondered what makes little kids so happy? They will laugh for no apparent reason at all.
Ever see a dog riding along in a car, with his face out the window, luxuriating in the breeze? Life is good! Or a cat, who finds that spot on the rug where the sunshine is coming through the window. Life is very good!
Isn’t it great when the salad bar has fresh crunchy green peppers? Or you get that perfect ripe watermelon?
I’m so glad Frank Sinatra recorded “My Way.” And that David Gates and Bread did “Baby I’m a Want You,” The Guess Who did “Share the Land,” Pink Floyd did “Comfortably Numb,” and The Sweet did “Ballroom Blitz.”
I appreciate the smell of fresh cut grass, leaves burning, and CK for men. I love the sounds of waves crashing on the shore in Hawaii, the street clatter of Rue St. Honoree in Paris, and the mélange of languages at any sidewalk café in South Beach.
I appreciate friendly flight attendants, fresh mangos from a backyard tree, and every wrinkle that is starting to show on my face.
Every time I fire up my Viper, I love the sound of that engine. I still get breathless every time I step into a ballpark and see a perfectly manicured baseball field. And every time I get on an airplane, I am in wonder that those big heavy things can fly.
What about you?
What do you have wonder about? And what are the wonders of life, that bring joy to your life?
