Hi All! Wow, it is November already. It feels like early September. Last week my smile was about enjoying the unseasonably warm weather, so I can’t use that one again. Hmmm… I can write about how well my writing is going, but I will wait until I put “The End” on my WIP ;) I got it, I will write about Halloween!
On Monday we went to help a friend hand out candy for Halloween. He gets over 1000 tick-or-treaters. So we get there and a couple of his other friends are there ahead of us. Music is playing and there are some instruments on the lawn. One of his other friends is going to play sax to prerecorded tracks. I get pulled into playing “drums”, or actually a cajon (look it up). I have never played one before and I am a bit rhythmically impaired, but I did it.
It turned out to be a lot of fun. I did OK for a first time. Nobody would mistake me for a professional percussionist, but some of it was pretty good.
So that was my smile for the week, playing a cajon for an “audience” of around 1500 on Halloween.
What made you smile?
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Note – I am no longer compiling the smiles into a weekly post as I used to – Sorry, I do not have time.
