What a gorgeous day! Blues skies and sunshine is the focal point today. They say we may even get up into the seventies.
Nengaku wrote in his blog yesterday something that really touched a chord with me...
One line in the movie that I had a very strong reaction to - "Happiness is never real unless it is shared." My first reaction was "what a load of crap - I'm happy as a clam and I'm living all alone...." and then suddenly it occurred to me that I'm sharing my happiness every day with all my (blog) readers!
What has been so joyful and meaningful lately is to share with you on this blog my recovery from alcoholism and mental illness. Like Nengaku, I am sharing my happiness with you all. There have been some days where I am almost giddy with joy and happiness. This is not normal for me. Normal was dour, drunk, and depressed. No wonder most people in my life had left me by the wayside seeking greener pastures. If they could only see me now!
I've spent a lot of time this morning at my hobby desk. I like nothing more than assembling and painting my rolling stock kits. Little works of art get to grace my bookshelves until the day arrives that I erect some bench work and rails and get a railroad running. Hobbies are made of dreams, and I dream everyday now.
