When Not Prescribed

.

“I believe in kindness.

Also in mischief.

Also in singing,

especially when singing

is not necessarily

prescribed.”

.

~ Mary Oliver

.

Who doesn’t have the imp in them that doesn’t

want to pull a harmless prank from time to time.

God bless those who can sing, those whose voice can

bring happiness into the heart of the listener,

even when it may not be at the prescribed time.

Today, at any time, sing a song that will

lift the spirits and make others happy.

Happiness is singing when singing is not necessarily prescribed.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

Sun In My Face

.

“Hello,

sun in my face.

Hello you

who made the morning

and spread it over

the fields…

Watch, now,

how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.”

.

~ Mary Oliver

.

The Great Creator and Big Brother are watching you.

God and the Thought Police are reading your mind.

Today, keep it simple,

sing like no one is listening,

dance like no one is watching

and think that everything deserves your unconditional love.

Smile, be the person your Higher Power wants you to be.

Kindness is appreciating this world.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.
