happy places.

Wild Horses

"We stopped for a snack break while searching for the famous herd of wild ponies in Grayson Highlands Park, Virg. This stallion joined us, creating a magical moment with the animal and in a place I love most."


"Our happiest places, through the camera's lens and the mind's eye."

I came across this gallery at Pictory tonight after a somewhat chaotic day at the office. I am exhausted.

It is much easier to remember our happy places when we're in them. I have a few....Mexico. Bed (always bed!). A good friend's house on Sunday movie night. Niagara-on-the-Lake in the Spring, with its beautiful gardens and fudge shops. A pumpkin farm in Fall (can still smell the leaves on a nasty Winter night). And of course, that great little parkway in Thorold...

"Happiness is not in our circumstance but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are."
 - John B. Sheerin

"Think of all the  beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy!"
