Let It Breathe ...

“Awake, my dear. Be kind to your sleeping heart. Take it out into the vast, fields of Light, And let it breathe.”
                              ~ Hafiz
Bright wild yellow mustard brushes a sweep of color on a sunny and peaceful May afternoon on a hillside of the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, awakening the landscape from the gray winter to the happiness of spring.

The color yellow is often associated with peace and happiness.

Summer Swan ...

“Happiness, not in another place but this place … not for another hour, but this hour.”
                        ~ Walt Whitman
                               ~ 1819-1892

A beautiful mute swan glides on the water as sunset knocks on the door of a sweet summer evening along the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania, perhaps reflecting on the beauty of this sunkissed moment.

Coloring In The Circles ...

"I see nothing in space as promising
as the view from a Ferris Wheel."
                                       ~ E.B. White
                                               ~ 1899-1985

The Ferris Wheel whirls in tandem with 
a smaller spinning wheel, coloring the sky over
the Midway with happiness on a warm September
evening, the opening of the 163rd Great Allentown Fair,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

A Child's Dream of Winter ...

"When I no longer thrill to the first snow of the season,
I'll know I'm growing old."
                                   ~ Claudia "Lady Bird" Johnson

This brightly colored sled left behind by a child
shines like a beam of happiness after this season's
first significant snowfall on a November evening
at Trexler Memorial Park, Alletown, Pennsylvania,
a reminder to always see the season's first snowfall
with childlike wonder.

Happiness On Wings ...

"Now think of the happiest things. 
It's the same as having wings."
                              ~ Peter Pan

When I saw this cute black-capped chickadee on an April afternoon in Trexler Memorial Park, 
Allentown, Pennsylvania, it reminded me
of this sweet and happy quote of Peter Pan.
