optimism

 
[wolf moon from several days ago]
What a mercurial week!  I've had belly-bruising giggles, and I've burst into tears on the street.  
There were sharp, painful negatives almost everyday - two flat tires (in a week!), the death of a dog, illness...
And even though they were relatively less significant, the positives were so much more resounding - Scintillating classroom discussions, freshly baked rosemary potato bread, a package in the mail, an incredibly exciting job opportunity for post-college life, new friends, late night giggles with my brother, fair trade chocolate... I could go on and on.  
Small things.
They've gotten me by, in a big way.
