i. a church anniversary concert which I got invited to. The choir voices were greatly enhanced by the very talented pianist who happens to be a friend but, even if he wasn’t, I would express the same observation.
ii. hosting lunch and dinner for a cousin and her son after the concert. We live in the same city but never see each other unless we take the effort to do so. I’m glad we did despite our full timetables. I cooked. That is rare but a much welcome sensation on the palate.
iii. positive feedback. I am dabbling in poetry this week over at my first blog. Comments are encouraging. Reacquainting myself with an old love alternated with stress at work. I wish the motivation was something else but at least the composition is not a sob story, nor a creative whine. I keep the poise, I like it that way.
iv. spontaneous hellos. I entered the lift the same time as someone from another faculty. Both on our way home, we smiled wearily at each other and simultaneously introduced our stuff – “Business English” “Business Statistics.” No chatter (haven’t we had enough of that in the lecture rooms) just sincere, friendly smiles.
v. spotting bright business ideas while reviewing a massive Public Relations reference book. It gives an impression of a bright tomorrow when everyone means business.
