 I do this by trying to build at least one snowman every year.  Shoveling though has always seemed like work to me (see Wilde remark above avatar) so I ignore it and just try to walk in the paths created by rolling the snowballs.  I consider myself an expert in childlike behavior.

Keebler makes "Grasshopper" Fudge Mint cookies and Back To Nature makes all-natural Fudge Mint cookies - there is also a Fudge Mint knock-off available at Target sometimes.  Two of those are probably less than $4.00. I've tried them all, but the GS brand seems to taste the best (to me).

Volunteer gigs can prove to be very good gigs.  Very good for many things.  Meeting like-minded people is one such thing.

Was outside tonight using my iPhone as a flashlight. Forgot that I set it on top of my car, and then later took my car out for a quick errand.

A few hours later, couldn't figure out where the phone was. Used Apple's Find My Phone and it told me it was...three blocks away?...

Went over and it was lying in the street - glass intact and still functioning, but the Apple leather case told me it had been run over repeatedly.
The case is all scarred up and raggedy, and I'm not even thinking about replacing it.

Whew.

More gobsmacked than merely smiling at the moment. Checked my Twitter feed to see that my daughter's vocals continue to be celebrated on Tom Cochrane's current tour across Canada. She's been opening the show with a 35-min. set, then joining Cochrane and Red Rider with back-up vocals/guitars/percussion. Another successful show last night in Calgary. I'm dying to see the show at Massey Hall next month. For the moment, texts from her and some images posted here and there. A long road for J. No overnight "The Voice"/"Idol" BS. Ten years of a varied genres and struggles. But this seems to be the year. She's half-way through her own record in Nashville. Sorry for the shameless plug. (@listentojm) (FB: 'jessicamitchellmusic') Maybe this time next year, Bill will see fit to add a track or two here. That would be wild beyond words for me.
Enjoy the day, everyone.

Seeing Ralph Sampson and his mother standing in line behind me waiting to check in with the doctor's receptionist this morning.

And then seeing a snow devil on the drive into work.

Finding an index card in a drawer today, and on it, in my mother's handwriting:

"Beauty is before me and Beauty behind me.
Above me and below me hovers the beautiful.
I am surrounded by it, I am immersed in it.
In my youth I am aware of it, and, in old age,
I shall walk quietly the beautiful trail.
In beauty, it is begun,
In beauty, it is ended."

A Navajo prayer.
