Joy from Very Little



I didn't check how long it's been since I last posted a blog entry, but I know it has been weeks. Maybe months. I'm not concerned with how long it's been because I really don't care. Haha.

I was going to routinely post here about positive things in my life. Well, that made for very sparse material about which to write. Don't get me wrong; I have it made in some ways: I live alone, I have two hilarious cats, I love my rusty old minivan, etc. etc. But I can't keep repeating that same stuff over and over again.

The cats and I are going to kick back in the beat up old recliner and watch several episodes of Star Trek Deep Space Nine tonight. I look forward to this little ritual more than anything else I think. Both of the cats jump up on me and will sit there until I have to get up for some reason...like I have to change the DVD or take a leak. Otherwise, we are inert together for a couple of hours. Honestly, it's blissful and I treasure it.

And then there's bed time...I take my shower and head for the bed. Both of the kitties lead the way into the bedroom and jump onto the bed. They sleep with me all night long. I turn on a fan for white noise and drift off with two furry warm bodies next to me. Again, bliss.

I guess that makes me very fortunate...these two "activities" are very simple yet they bring me so much joy. I never want that to end.

Thanks for sharing this...yes, small things like what you've just described are worth their weight in gold. 

Sadly, most people (and entitled Americans in particular) take things for granted.

What you've written reminds me of this quote by Diogenes:

"I threw my cup away when I saw a child drinking from his hands at the trough."

We complicate life way too much, don't we? Silly humans. 🙂
