These posts so far have always been around my own experiences and photos to match. But I have to share this link today as it totally made me smile and feel good. Music and dancing is such a wonderful combination. It always lifts my spirit. This guy’s guitar playing and interaction with people in the… Continue reading What Makes You Smile?
The perfume of the jasmine on my patio drifting into my home; the first sign of spring on our doorstep lifting our spirit. Happy first spring day to all.
