1. The joy of finding a favourite
I know I am a tad late but I finally got my hands on John Grisham’s works, and I’m sold. Right now I’m reading The Firm, and enjoying it immensely. It’s a nail-biting thriller that’s so difficult to put down. I can’t wait to read more of his books.
2. The intrigue of street art
I enjoy being a tourist in my own city. There’s so much to see and do around town without having to dig deep into my pocket. Admiring street art is one of my past-times. Every summer, there’s a free event, Spraycankontrol, that is open to everyone to participate, learn or enjoy. All one needs is a paint and imagination.
3. What so special about reorganizing old photos?
Even with technology advancement, I still love to hold the printed photo in my hand. I’ve moved houses a lot, I’ve lost count. But wherever I go, I always take these old family (and friends) photos with me. From time to time, I reorganized them or add to the collection. It’s more than just doing the Marie Kondo thing but to relive (some scandalous) the memories. It’s truly one of the things that makes me happy.
4. Happiness is a choice
I’m an easy customer. Things that make me happy are simply and mostly free. I wrote the micro poem below few years ago as I was musing on why some people make it look or sound like it’s difficult to achieve happiness.
5. Summer mood
I love symphonic or orchestral music, even though I don’t get to listen or attend concerts often. But I recently marvelled at this remix of Rollanda: Everybody’s free by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Saara Aalto.
Indeed, everybody is free to feel good. Do you have a song that puts you in that right or good mood for summer?
