Two ways to feel happy.

“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.”

A field of flowers,
colors spilling out,
dancing in the valley,
gladdens my heart!
To lie midst the
waving blooms,
clouds floating by
in the breeze,
is a joy.

When flowers bloom, is there a heart that is not filled with happiness?

"No matter how chaotic it is, wildflowers will spring up in the middle of nowhere."

I have always been an incurable doodler and doodled through boring meetings, classes...well just anywhere. I never gave any importance to my doodling, but today I thought I would share with you a doodle and a story I made up.  :-)

The weather was so very hot that the little one really, really longed for a cool bath.
The river was the best place, and she had been there earlier with her mother.

Today mother was not at home so who should she go to the river with?
Just then came her friends and called her to play in the water.

Splash, splash…a wonderful bath party ensued!
Every minute was a joy and the water was so cool.
Their happy shouts drew some birds and one landed on her tail!

Spraying water everywhere was just pure fun!
And having friends to play with made her laugh joyfully!

And, joyfully I join my party with friends over at
Circle of art
Please do join in and have fun! :-)
