Goodness…Gracious

November 22, 2005

Ok, so…

Things go.
Thinks go smoothly.
Things are easy. Things are happy.
So happy. So easy.
Things make me smile. Alot.
Selfishly, awesomely, giddy.
And ever so appreciative.

But, still….

Happiness, it seems, is not evenly spread around.

In time. We all will be. Rest assured.
But now-
Unable to comfort those that need it.
That, my friends, brings sadness.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

But, let me recount the good:
The meeting and merging of friend and family.

Getting along. Fabulously.
Eager to know and embrace.
Happy for me. And for us.
Could it get any better?

May I take nothing for granted.

Goblet of AWESOME.

Holy crap.

Harry Potter was so amazing.
My favorite of the books….done so well.

I can’t believe it.

Voldemort was phenomenal.
Harry had improved quite a bit.
The humor was very well incorporated.
Just a really solid film–and solid special effects as well.
Perfect.

I’m soooo going to see it again.
Most likely tonight with the family.
I bought the soundtrack yesterday, but it’s not all that great.
Certainly not bad, but not as amazing as the first three scores.
It’s a little to generalized. Not enough magic.
But I do really love the way the Mermaid’s song was done.

Anyhoo….there you have it.
Five and a half gold stars to Goblet of Fire.
On second thought, make it six.

Too Much Happiness

November 14, 2005

Well, this week pretty much threw my happiness meter through the roof. In fact, I may need an entirely new system altogether just so that I can more accurately gauge the overwhelming positivity of the past 7 days.

Exactly one week ago I wouldn’t have imagined it.
It really is too good. Too right, even.
Practically perfect in every way.

That’s it-

Maybe I’ll devise a happiness tape measure and put it in my magical carpet bag for safe keeping…

Anyway. I’m conscious of and sensitive to the adjustments that may be required so that my happiness doesn’t start busting seams and shooting buttons in other people’s eyes. I don’t want to be annoying. I don’t want to be giddy. I don’t want to let on to others about how awesome my new friend is. But I’m afraid the extra twinkle in my eye might be difficult to hide. Everyone deserves something this positive. I wish I could divide it up with the people I love and share it with them so that all our days may be a bit brighter.

But until then, I’m going to enjoy it. Take each day as it comes. Hope for the best. Remain an individual. Acknowledge, accept, appreciate, and embrace all that is happening. It’s my life. And after twenty-one years, I finally get to live it.

Cheers.
