Happiness IS...the letter I, ABC Wednesday

With the word "happiness" in there because I missed last week, and also the week before, when my husband had surgery. He's fine now. I'm still tired. :-)

But, first, the letter I means one of my favorite places in cyberspace: Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, an online writers' group which has taught me "I ain't the poet I useta was" but, if I keep trying, I might get past doggerel and into the "write" headspace for expressing myself in poetry again.

And now, for the letter I, happiness IS...

IT IS wild birds and wild animals near our southeastern Alberta home.
Photos by Kay. L. Davies and Richard Schear

IT IS our favorite tame animal with her favorite toy.

IT IS visiting my old friends and old haunts in
Vancouver, BC.
IT IS children completely absorbed in making art.

IT IS our new kitchen.

IT IS my brother's new cat.

There are a lot of fondness created through 'I'. It's so much fun when we can translate those that are close to our heart. Thanks for sharing Kay!

Wonderful photos, Kay, and it's great to catch up with what you're doing! I love the kids, the kitchen and the cat..and of course, the ever-beautiful Lindy.

Hope Dick continues to feel better each day and that you get caught up on rest soon...:)
