Re: I smiled because...

Has anyone else got the association instilled in them that happy people are simple people (blissfull ignorance etc), and intelligent, aware people are typically in some state of depression (eg/ a tortured artistic genius). The more I think about it, the more ridiculous a generalisation it seems, but it is so often referenced.

I smiled because I got taken seriously, and treated like an adult, for possibly the first time at work this week.

I tend to agree with this generalisation though.
Letting go and not thinking, just riding the waves does lead to peaceful contentment

I smiled because.... twas what was expected of me

I took a good friend of mine to see the Jungfrau, the Mönch and the Eiger from a helicopter. It was quite an experience for both of us

Re: I smiled because...

what made me smile the other day was someone telling me, ... and please, don't play dumb I know you got something intelligent to say on the subject. I felt sooo found out.

and yes, sometimes, to be taken seriously can be quite a battle. glad you got a taste of that.

Re: I smiled because...

... the small chocolates by Minor on sale in the Coop are called Minorettes (and I thought they were banned ) Yes, I know it is spelled differently.

Also, I got back to England to find Marston's Pedigree, among other beers, for £1.00 a pint in Lidl.
There have to be some perks for being back here.

...because I finished my first big knitting project. Pictures will not be forthcoming, but a lovely feeling of accomplishment all the same.

Re: I smiled because...

I still get high on what the natural world has to offer.
I mean the vibrant colours of autumnal maples.
