Subject: BS: What made you happy today
From: GUEST,rock chick
Date: 13 Sep 07 - 10:38 AM

So what made you happy today, for me it was in my work.

I visited a young GP, who had suddenly lost his hearing, suffered with severe Tinnitus and had been diagnosed with Menière's disease. This young man was thinking he may have to give up being a GP as he was struggling and was desperate. I visited him as a specialist for the deaf and hearing impaired, and after about 1.5 hours we had found equipment that supported him and found a particular electronic stethoscope that was also suited. It gives me a great feeling knowing I have made someone happy and brightened their day, how about you?

Walking the beach with Seamus, on a beautiful autumn morning, with blue skies, fluffy white clouds and warm sun. This was the last time for a while that I can take him to the beach as I'm in for a hernia repair tomorrow and will be taking it very easy for the next few weeks.

The other thing that made me happy was that Kendall had a little bit of voice come through in conversation this morning.

Life is very good.

Jacqui, good luck on the hernia repair. I had one done a few years ago - in the diaphragm - and was glad to get past it with minimal pain and discomfort.

What makes me happy today? Several of us met at noon in a downtown arts place and played for an hour and a half. Mostly instrumentals- but very nice.

I always get satisfaction from teaching, but today was unusually good. I've been working for a few weeks with a young man with autism. He plays very well, and he really did a good job today. What makes me feel especially good is that he started talking to me today. That was a breakthrough that made me very happy.

nuffin' particular yet (it's only 10.30), but yesterday I had lunch with an ex-colleague & stayed in reception for a while talking with other (ex) colleagues (I love watching wage slaves working!!) then wandered off to our fanciest department store to look at their 'Fabulous Festival of Fantastic Flora' inspired by Graeme Base's famous and much-loved children's book 'Animalia'. Spring has definitely sprung.

I kept going wow! eyes popping out at the displays & intend to go back with my camera before it's pulled down.

Another reason this was a happy day is that the weather was perfect. Colored leaves have floated everywhere and I picked up one that I decided was a color called 'Autumn Birch' and two others, a deep umber and the other a red-orange one. There was a light gusty breeze blowing and the sun was warm. The air has a clarity unmatched anywhere. It is Autumn, for sure. Lovely.

This is actually yesterday's post which I couldn't submit because the Cat was down, so it's about what I did yesterday.

It was a perfect warm sunny Spring day today, so I took a few minutes to walk around the garden and look at the new growth everywhere and be assailed by all the gorgeous Spring smells.

First stop was the lemon tree, so I could bury my nose in the first fragrant flowers of the season. The tree is covered with pink buds, as well as some of last year's lemons. The passionfruit vine is recovering from the snail invasion now that I've picked them all off, and new growth is everywhere on it. The Chinese Star Jasmine has fresh green tendrils waving around looking for something to grab on to, the sage has new bright green leaves, and the peach tree is covered with pink blossoms and new little green leaves are just starting.

There's my sweet scented jasmine pretty in pink all over the fence, and as I walked past my big climbing rose that is covered with new red leaves and buds, I was struck by the strong scent of rose, even though none of the flowers are out yet. I picked a few little freesias that sprang up in the front lawn and put them in a vase with a few sprigs of jasmine next to my bed. Heavenly! I love Spring!

Absolutely, Ebbie. I can really relate to your feelings about Autumn too! In general, I think I prefer the in-between seasons, especially around the time of the equinox. Often the best sunsets are around those times - and I do love a good sunset!

Today the weather has been somewhat different. It was warmer, but overcast - working up to a thunderstorm. It was only a little storm, but fun while it lasted. Big splashy drops, enough to soak the ground and freshen up the garden, a few rumblings, and it was gone. All those negative ions are great for boosting one's energy, so I'm off to clean the house :-)

Oh, ok, happy birthday,Liz.

   Wishing you well kendall and jeff - all? your teeth, my commiserations.

   Yesterday's today is today's yesterday - had tea/coffee with a younf polish woman from work, met a fellow astrloger, found a performance of Mahler 1 that I didn't know about and nor does the Mahler discography compiler, enjoyed the summer/autumn sunshine, found some beat jokes in a book I found ("I've Taken a Page in the Bible!" compiled by the late Alfred Marks" - see latest joke thread for an example); had lors of laughs with a current brilliant improvised beeb show Mock the Week.

And finished watching young performers at the Proms - national Youth orchestra of Great Britain, European Community Youth Orchestra.

Above all, the wonderful, awe-inspiring Simon Bolivar youth Orchestra of venezuela. They are the product a la sistem (?) where street children who've fallen into crime are given the choice of prison or intennsive music study leading to orchestral plating.

the results are stunning - they play terrifically, have a gifted young conductor,Gustavo Dudamel, (who's now to be the next director of the L.A. Philharmonic), and played some items in spectacular and colourful (to say the very least) outfits, swayed in their chairs some of the time, danced about too, twirled instruments, and generally brought the house down.

now if more concerts were done like that,.................

Slept good.

I went to the Police Station and filed a report on the accident which wrote my car off on 3rd Sept, and from which I have whiplash, i.e. muscles in neck, shoulder, left arm, lower & middle back are sore.

I needed to file the report to claim some insurance to pay for treatment, but the up side is that, in Oz, if someone is injured in a crash then the driver in the wrong could be investigated by the Police. I'm hoping he gets charged for something like negligent driving. But at least he doesn't get to just mouth platitudes at me: "I'm sorry for the inconvenience". Hopefully he'll be given a hard time, at least.

I've had to walk to station/catch train/walk from station to and from work, making a half hour trip into an hour's "inconvenience" each way. And the insurance on my car will never pay for a car as good as that one. I bought it from my Dad who had it for about 8 years. He's a motor mechanic so he had it running like a dream. It would have stayed on the road, stayed as reliable as ever, for at least another 10 years. It wasn't "just another car". It was a family heirloom. Sentimental value.

So, at least I get the satisfaction of knowing that there is a police report on the other driver, and that it is now rated as a major motor accident.

A screwed up sort of happiness, of the what-goes-around-comes-around variety, but I feel better emotionally now than I did when I woke up this morning.
