A phrase was introduced not too long ago (perhaps regionally?) in the refuse industry.  This business, like any other, is conscious of marketing.  But also, of efficiency.

             The “new” idea was that no one in the house had to sort recyclables anymore, that was now a job at the other end.  We could combine our items which were not trash, and the landfills would be less crammed full.


             The term and process were born.  This was über helpful, on so many levels.  This morning, that’s the hyphenated word which came to me, as I was witnessing many of the same scenes from yesterday.

             We are but a tiny grain of sand upon a massive beach.  When a closer look is called for, however, each individual particle is precious, beautiful, and entirely unique.

             We co-exist with all of the world, and our community, and our Tribe, and all the way down to simply being with only ourselves.  Our adventure here is about being with, mingling, and also it’s about being alone, in solitary moments.

             As we continue to stay outside of the regular rotation around our card altar, the daily draw is precisely the validation for this message.

“Peaks of Joy  ~  33  ~

‘Your life is filled with happiness, so share it with others!’


Joy is yours today!  No matter what your inquiry, you will be happy with the results.   

You’re coming closer to a sense of achievement, and you’ve worked hard for it.  You are surrounded by true companions, and events that are synchronistically arranged to bring you to the next level of your life.

The world is singing a beautiful harmony.  Life is exhilarating and hopeful.  Let gratitude fill your heart and remember to share your happiness. 

Joy is contagious.


Do you rely too heavily on your material achievements when you assess how happy you are?  Perhaps you say, ‘I’ll be happy when I meet the right lover/make the right amount of money/reach my ideal weight [and so on].’

Why wait to arrive at the perfect destination before allowing yourself to experience sheer delight?

This is a day for joy!  Take a walk, listen to the songbirds, play with a dog, look at a baby . . . . and be in awe of life, which leads to a true sense of bliss.

Be alive, be grateful, and know that happiness is an inside job.”

  1. I’m really getting to like this deck. Are you still happy with them?

    Huh, I’ve never had any trouble with basil, but I can’t say I’ve rubbed my eyes directly after picking it either. And is that gallon jug full of honey, too? If so, where do you get so much of it?

    I’ll definitely be outside for part of today. It’s cloudy and cool. A perfect work outside day.

    Yes, I’m still very happy with this deck, just need to finish the damn book.

    That’s not a gallon jug, it’s only about a quart or so. I buy honey in bulk from several natural grocery stores around here, most are supplied by Hummingbird Distributors.

  2. This is the day for joy. A day for acceptance. A day for wonderful things. It is a happy day. A day of peace and wonderfulness.

    Not sure why but it is an awesome feeling.

    You are correct,
    it is ALL of those things! 😀
