Snapshots from a happy life

Confession: I'm actually really scared to delve back into this long-abandoned series. It's been a long time -- since Jeffy died -- since I've felt truly happy, with any consistency, and it feels disingenuous to post a series about how gosh darn happy my life is, if I don't feel that way. My life and heart are still a mess right now, though I've been able to stabilize some, and I feel like bringing back this series now. Not to rub it in anyone's face just how freaking happy I am -- but to show myself the happy moments, to remember those great moments, so that when I feel emotionally overwhelmed, or wake up screaming from a nightmare I can't remember (hello, this morning), I can prove to myself that this, too, shall pass.

Don't get me wrong. The majority of the time -- I am able to see that.  But I'd like to post about it anyway.


Anyway, here are some of my happy moments as of late:

Dolores Park, as seen from a morning run on a day off

































4th Street, Berkeley -- gorgeous summer foliage has grown in

































Cedar Rose Park, Berkeley, as seen on a run

































Black-Eyed Susans in Hayes Valley

































Spring pasta sauce in the making: spring garlic, spring onion, asparagus, shelling peas

































PAWS at The Independent last Wednesday

































A typical scene these days: DS9 and slippers
