Skipping on Cotton Candy
Skipping on Cotton Candy is about the simple things in life. The ones that fill us with true happiness and delight
In Ethics class, back in my high school years, the teacher made us read the book: “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor Frankl so we could then discussed in class what our life’s purpose was… and we all came to the conclusion that it was, well it is the pursuit of HAPPINESS…
I love this Michael Jackson’s quote because it is true that everything in life has its counterpart… and sometimes we just can’t avoid the feelings of hopelessness… “In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
It’s up to us to choose a side… life isn’t easy but we can, we must try to do our best and leave footprints that will not change the whole world but will make a difference in our life and in the people and the environment that surround us… just like the experience in Japan you told on your recent post… Unknown people touched your heart… how powerful and beautiful is that?!
What makes us happy? It’s up to each one of us to know what makes us happy… In my case… lots of things make me happy… from simple things like cotton candy to the fact that I’m alive… I love and I feel loved… my faith, to think of my family, my friends, horses, rainbows, fairies, birds, music, skipping along, autumn colours, starry nights, sky, smiles, green grass, kindness, to laugh without cause, the sun, the moon, chocolate, ice cream, a cup of tea, I could go on and on… I really mean that…there are plenty of sources that bring happiness to my life… and I’m keen to gather as many chunks of happiness as possible…
“I am often accused of being childish. I prefer to interpret that as child-like. I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things. I tend to exaggerate and fantasize and embellish. I still listen to instinctual urges. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. I never water my garden without soaking myself.” – Leo F.
Life itself is a miracle… so it’s up to us to make the most of this journey…
Oh boy… our mind tends to overthink and overanalize everything…I don’t like that… it can drive me crazy!!!!!!!!!! Pirate Julie says: Aaaaargh!!

“I took this shot at the park on top of a mountain last Sunday. I was exactly at the right place at the right time and got very lucky. The man in the picture is just about to touch the cloud with his foot. You can see his foot and body are casting a shadow on the cloud. No Photoshop or effects were used in this shot.”
