“Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.”
– William James

This morning, they were talking about the laughing baby videos on YouTube and they are so funny!  There’s nothing that makes me feel better than a good belly laugh!  Yesterday, I received this video and roared.  I love a good laugh.  Have fun in whatever you do today and if you can’t laugh, at least wiggle your butt.  It has the same affect.  🙂

About William James

American psychologist and philosopher William James, brother to author Henry James, wrote voluminously during his life, exploring a range of issues from a theory of emotion to a philosophy of history. He was born in New York in 1842 and wanted to be an artist, but his father disapproved. He obtained a medical degree but felt unsatisfied and depressed, leading to a crisis that he called his soul sickness. After this turning point, he began his fulfilling second career. He died in 1910.

    Oooooh…..Poor doggy. Just my opinion but I think the owner ought to be put in the kennel for leaving the “kiity-kat” treats laying out. Loved the doggy grin, though. I love your impressionistic take on the poppy field. Rather cool composition to this with the curved fenceline and the field opening up in the foreground. Wonderful sky!
