Geewillinkinwinkings – So Much Bad News!

Bombings, earthquakes, abductions, shootings, climate change, financial disasters, unemployment and more – day after day we become aware of bad news from around the world.

It’s hard to keep perspective, let go of those things over which we have no control and remember good things happen too!  I must admit I had to force my mind to focus but I found a few examples that I hope will brighten your day.

A quote from Mark Twain

‘When we remember we are all mad, mysteries disappear and life stands explained.’

Earth Day

Google’s animated and interactive doodles often brighten my day and today’s reminds us it is Earth Day and that each of us can make a difference.  See how here.

Love In Action

Yes, Facebook!  Admittedly some people use Facebook to let us know too regularly of their digestive problems in too much detail and some use it to sell, sell, sell – but in my world the majority focus on sharing all the good things we’ve come across or that have happened to us lately.  Hope it works for you too.

Art Websites

So many inspiring sites and blogs out there.  Just a few I visit regularly are Lines and Colors, Doodlers Anonymous, and Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast – why stop at 6?!

A post with no paintings!!  I’ll do better next time.  Until then,

    The lack of a painting (I do like them all) is made up by the Mark Twain quote. Not one I have read before and it made me smile and nod my mad head!!

      Aha Shazzy – I had to spend a bit of time in the WordPress maze but I now know how to see who subscribes rather than follows – still not sure of the distinction… Thanks for leading to further my knowledge – and subscribing 🙂

      Hi Shazzy, No I didn’t forget, how could I?!!! I was thinking maybe ‘It’s A Boy!’ was too personal for a public blog – especially one aiming to brighten someone else’s day. I did mention becoming a Nonna on an earlier one. It’s great that you read my blog! :)oxo
