"The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.
-- Robert Louis Stevenson"

I had a heavy disappointment a few days ago, one I'm still trying to get over. Crying's only good for so long before my eyes are red and puffy and my mascara is running (not to mention it's complicated to do in public.) Torturing myself over what I might have done wrong results in my sadness lasting even longer than it naturally would have, and blaming others is unfair to them and to myself. I've decided to post something that makes me happy, every day. I'll manage to help myself move on, or give someone else a smile when they need it. Either of those would be fine with me.

Today, my happy-as-kings thought is the wind before a thunderstorm. It's warm, and strong, and a little bit threatening. Not enough to be scary, just enough to be exhilarating. The sky becomes yellow with the burgeoning clouds, and the thunder echoes in the distance. The trees across the street toss and bounce, and look for all the world like a green ocean crashing on a beach I can't see. It's thrilling and peaceful all in the same moment.

Thanks, y'all! I tried out for the faire troupe and did not make the cut. It was especially hard to take because I've danced at faire for years, but I'll survive. Your support means the world to me.
