Right now things are really good with me because I know what makes me happy. Do you?
I like to look at beautiful things. Here’s one:
I have these replicas in my house and I look at them when I get up.
After that I have a bowl of forest twig/Brazil nut granola. A capybara that I met at a conference turned me on to it. Then, feeling really clear-headed and strong, I take a walk around the neighborhood. I usually visit the clamshell fountain… wait, what’s that banging?
BANG BANG KNOCK KNOCK
IS SOMEBODY TRYING TO BREAK INTO MY BLOG? Oh no! I think it’s Neville Hare, an obnoxious rabbit I have to deal with every day at he Institute. He is a complete lackey to the Institute’s Director, Orange Bearcat.
“Indigo Animal! Why are you polluting the internet with your reactionary art aesthetic! I demand that you stop!”
“Neville! How did you break into my blog? I am trying to tell people about beauty, classical lawn statuary, and our Institute.”
“Indigo, you have no right to present yourself as a representative of the Institute. I am really upset!”
“Neville, I want to be nice about this. But it’s hard if you are always so angry. I’m open to you saying your point of view now and then, even though it’s MY BLOG. But if you accuse me of stuff or are consistently nasty, I reserve the right to ask you to leave. You have to try to control your tendencies.”
“Okay. But only for the sake of a fuller representation of what we do at the Institute, especially the Director’s research!”
“Fine. The institute is a big tent and you can explain about all the other departments besides mine. But today I was talking about things I like. So I am giving you permission now to show the people something that really makes YOU happy.”
“Okay we need to let him think about this for a while. It’s a new concept for him. Bye! Till the next time!”
