Thought I would start a new thread just for the hell of it, because I can. Look, we all know that real life (and this place, by extension) can hand us a fair share of negative vibes and worries to deal with. But through it all, there is always some great stuff to appreciate, even if it is just the simple things. For instance, as silly as these monster dollies can be, they've gotten me through some rough times. And I am thankful for that, and for all the good folks I have met through this community of like-minded nerdy misfits. Anyways, just to kick this off, let's list some random things which have made my past few days a little bit brighter. who knows, maybe it'll help some other folks see something in their daily lives they might appreciate. - had a long weekend - got to go camping - had a most kelp excellent beer by the fireside - roasted some hot dogs - ate some laverbread (seaweed, I highly recommend it!) - picked up a cool tee from a local surf shop - had tasty prawn sandwich - got to see a cool exhibit on ancient bones and prehistoric artifacts - enjoyed a good cigar - overate at a greasy breakfast - quaffed a nice beer out in the sun - went for a seaside walk, discovering some 'wild horses' - sat around a fire into the night - imbibed at leisure on root beer and whisky (not together or necessarily in that order) - stared at the stars - cruised to some Motown - sourced some local honey from a tiny hamlet and plenty more besides, ... and am currently sipping some amazingly smokey mezcal So basically, life has a lot of little things you can enjoy when you choose to. Please do so. I know it doesn't always balance the other stuff in life, but if you don't pay attention to what is good, you'll only ever have that cloud hangin' over everything. Cheers SB, thanks for being part of the good stuff.
