That feeling when you get to the middle of your sucker......
Or the anticipation of a handmade malt at an old fashioned ice cream counter.
Or when you watch a soft, gentle, warm summer rain while snuggling your dog.
P.T. Barnum is credited with the saying "There's a sucker born every minute." I have always known that I am one, a sucker that is. I make no apologies for not being able to pass by a child begging, especially one playing a sad song on an accordion. When I looked into the eyes of the child Gypsies that I came across in Greece, I still saw a helpless child, even after one of them called someone a Mother F*^*$#, when he was dissatisfied with the amount of money he was given as a tip for playing his sad song.
There seemed to me, an irony, with a sweet girl playing her sad accordion on the most beautiful island of Santorini while two tourists, with a spectacular view, seemed oblivious to her standing next to them. She seemed intrigued with my harmonica, which I played for her and it made her smile.
Thomas Huxley wrote, "For every man the world is as fresh as it was at the first day, and as full of untold novelties for him who has the eyes to see them."
Don't forget to frolic. Springtime is a good time for frolicking. Frolicking is good for your soul. If you don't know how to frolic, you can ask the nearest child or dog.
