Smiled and giggled all the way through this thread. It's the little things that give the most pleasure.

Re: I smiled because...

What ever may await me, I shall take.
Hopefully with grace and dignity.
I have resolve and I shall strive to reach for this hope of mine.
With steady patience, I will find my way.

Re: I smiled because...

This morning on the highway to Zurich there was a large group of children on the overpass waving to motorists. Myself and all 3 lanes of cars behind me cheerfully waved back, beaming stupidly as we did so

I remember on school bus trips up in sunny Glasgow we would sit at the back and wave at the car behind the bus. If the driver didn't wave back they would get the one fingered salute.

Charming lot us Scots

Re: I smiled because...

I saw a bat this early morning.
She flew over me twice, and went into a hole under the roof of the house...

House's bat is back

In fact, there's not one, not two, but three bats under the roof....

Re: I smiled because...

Beautiful picture, beautiful music.
I too love "Clair de Lune", I have tried to teach myself to play it on the piano but have a loooong loooong way to go.

Thank you Sky.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I am here
And this is now
And there's no other place I'd rather be
So many different definitions for a quest
Perhaps I may fail
But at least I will try again and again
Until I succeed
It means nothing to no one
And a lot to me

Re: I smiled because...

Several doctor's visits later, including testing of biologicals as well as a 24hr blood pressure test - doc has proclaimed me fit as a fiddle!

Happy days indeed!


(Well, except for allergy asthma issue, for which I am due to see an allergy specialist for more testing.)

Re: I smiled because...

Things have been really turning around recently, the longer I stay here the more positive and friendly experiences I'm having with locals. It doesn't hurt that my German is improving, at a town-party in Rotkreuz this weekend some people were being really nice to me because they were kind of amazed that an American was speaking German. I'm know I'm bragging a bit (and my German is still awful in absolute terms) but that was a great feeling and makes me think the lessons are worth it.

Also I was given a ride by a total stranger on Saturday after I got off on the wrong train stop. A pleasant shock.
