I Have A Childlike Enthusiasm For Life

It's fun 135 People

    Certainly

    at least I used to; I've been depressed for the past four months but before that I was always the one to constantly point out all sorts of random beautiful things to everyone I loved. I remember jumping with joy over the smallest thing, being grateful for everything life had to...

    Made A Snow Angel

    And it came out perfect!It is all in the getting up, as any snow angel expert will tell you. Well, the laying down AND the getting up. She has to look as if she has just dropped down out of the sky, which requires a certain nimbleness, which I have.My 6 year old is just starting...

    Wanna See? A Blimp Story

    Personally, I am happy on the ground, I mean with my feet firmly planted on it, but I am fascinated by blimps and hot air balloons. They are common where I live, a safe wind corridor between Philadelphia and New York City, so I get to see a lot of them. Many small airports make...

    I Got To Hug Santa

    I swear, every cent I pay in taxes is worth it, or, at least, any money that I send to the volunteer fire department. Every year on the Saturday night before Christmas Santa rides around town on the front of  the giant hook and ladder truck and gives out candy canes to any...
