j is for joy!

Thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.
Siddhārtha Gautama (aka Buddha), (563-483 BCE) spiritual teacher

yesterday had me jumping for joy. I learned I was the recipient of two 'awards' from blogging buds! dumdad from the other side of paris shared his joy of blogging by bestowing the beautifully handcrafted and potentially valuable dummy award on a group of fellow bloggers who he says has made "this blogging lark so much fun."

regarding the mouse, jules (otherwise known as dumdad) remarks, "A gentle blog packed with thought-provoking quotes and photos, and Maurice said I had to give an award to Kimy." eek, such praise - and thanks maurice!

wow! and if my head wasn't already swollen from receiving the dummy. last night before jumping into bed, I found sweet and generous colette amelia bestowed another award! double eek! two awards in one day!! yesterday's new moon or something cosmic and planetary must have been sending out mouse magic! I've always thought of colette amelia as one of my soul sisters out there in the cyberhood. a fellow lover of quotes, ca is ever imagining the world a better place. she devotes considerable thought and attention in her blog toward critically thinking about what's happening on planet earth - locally and globally. colette lives in one of my favorite places on the planet. I expect one day I may run into her when I'm out wandering - I know it will be great fun to sip some sambucca with colette and watch the whales and sea otters frolic along the pacific coast!

thank you jules and colette amelia!

OH my! my head is swelling and this was supposed to be about you. But in order to see all those frolicking ocean animals I will need to drive 8 or 9 hours to the ocean...alas I am in a beautiful area indeed but in the centre of British Columbia and instead of ocean vistas with whales I have moose, black bears, deer,and mice!

I am sure C.A. can get a ride to the ocean for that meeting.

sorry ca! I had totally misplaced you in the grand province of british columbia! (and I even have your snail mail address, but never went to a map) but no worry, I do adore woodland critters - including all those you identify. although I do get a bit nervous when bears are about. a new area to explore! so we will sip sambucca while watching leaves rustle and the forest animals play.
