Just a quick update on what I have dubbed The Book of Happy. THANK YOU to everyone who has supported, lurked, read, contributed, and reccomended things to include. You are all wonderful people.
I thought I would share a few of the less personal pages just as a general thank-you, and to give people an idea of what a Book of Happy can be like if you want to go all art-journal on it. (Obviously, digital file=best system for some; binder with loose paper=another good system; mp3 playlist=another tool; no work for brain at all=completely legit. Different brains, different methods. Etc.)
I know I posted one page the other day, it's in the Flickr set
that I may or may not be updating regularly with excerpts from it. Full set of photos is on Flickr, but I'll post one here. Also, lizcommotion does not have spoons at this second for transcribing All The Pages, so plz bear with her as she does so. Sorry for the accessibility outage, if anyone wants to comment here or on Flickr with transcriptions that would be awesome and helpful.
Transcript: Notebook page with a pink owl sticker, alternating between different scripts as lizcommotion is able (mostly cursive, upper case, and regular handwriting.)
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ros
"Life is a journey, not a destination." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Dark and difficult days lie ahead, and we must all face the choice betwen what is right and what is easy." ~ Albus Dumbeldore
"Don't forget about chocolate (and Demetors)" [note to myself left throughout the BoH]
