5 reasons to be happy

I woke up feeling rather down and the gloom has been hovering over me all day, so...

5 reasons to be happy:

5. I'm rereading Till We Have Faces. It's been a long time since my first reading (3 years, I think).

"No, no no," she said. "You don't understand. Not that kind of longing. It was when I was happiest that I longed most. It was on happy days when we were up there on the hills, the three of us, with the wind and the sunshine … where you couldn't see Glome or the palace. Do you remember? The colour and the smell, and looking at the Grey Mountain in the distance? And because it was so beautiful, it set me longing, always longing. Somewhere else there must be more of it. Everything seemed to be saying, Psyche come! But I couldn't (not yet) come and I didn't know where I was to come to. It almost hurt me. I felt like a bird in a cage when the other birds of its kind are flying home.

4. My Peter Pan cast. ♥

3. I learned how to do a heart in HTML. ♥ You have no idea how happy this makes me.

2. "This Charming Girl - handmade and vintage treasures for all your whimsical jewelry needs" - Camera Shy Necklace I didn't even know I had "whimsical jewelry needs" until I found this website.

1. The fact that I actually had to make myself stop at five. I have more reasons.

That in itself is very cheering. All right. I feel better now. :)


  1. Oh my goodness!!!! Till We Have Faces is one of my favorite books ever. I reread it pretty recently.... a lot of stuff I hadn't really understood before is now clear to me.

  2. I muuuuuuuuuusssssssttttt read "Til We Have Faces"!!! I love that quote so much...I swear, C.S. Lewis is my kindred spirit. :) I have learned so much from his writings!

    And I love your new header! It's purty...

  3. I really really really need to reread Till We Have Faces. It's been way too long.

  4. what *is* the HTML for a heart?
