Contemplations about Life, Love, & the Pursuit of Meaningful Existence…

Everyday Joy


โ€œGreat is the human who has not lost his childlike heart.โ€ ~Mencius


Boundless wonder

Spongelike senses

Candid smiles

Blessed innocence

Carefree laughter

Giddy enthusiasm






Everyday Joy

(Photo from Havana, Cuba, San Francisco de Asis Plaza,ย United Buddy Bears Exhibition , promoting peace and tolerance between nations. The precious little girl was ecstatic over a photo her gorgeous mommy had snapped of her with the adjacent red bear.)


Here we are — as you can probably guess from her attire — by the United States bear.

  4. LL, Such delicious words and images you weave to match the gorgeous photos, my luminous friend. You are a blessing. xoxo

  5. Being curious about everything, and able to appreciate the little things we see/meet/sense every day sometimes gets lost for us adults and we have to nudge ourselves back to that sense of wonder that we all had as children. Beautiful poem, and reminder, Shauna!

    • Travel/mingling with the world is the only sure activity that keeps my wonder alive. Whenever I’m feeling blah about life, I know it’s time to strap on my shoes and get out there…Thank you, Tiny! ๐Ÿ’— ๐ŸŒŽ

  6. Wonderful photo that captures the joy! Great post.

    The quote says it all! And somehow writing, that avenue for channelling my creativity is mostly responsible for maintaining my childlike heart and wonder at this world.
