Simple Things, catching the wave...



What makes you happy?
For me, it's a calm day at the dock, to catch crab, to watch sea life.

What are the simple things that keep you going?

You always have great photos and I always yuink to myself, "I've been there!"

Dimple said...

Peaceful shot. People standing on a dock always make me think about fishing, which I find very relaxing.
Thanks for the visit.


BTW, do you do any photo editing, or are your shots mostly straight from the camera?

What makes me happy? Feeling loved and secure by that love....oh, and walking out in the sunshine with a cool breeze blowing across my face. :)

Thank you for the neat plug for Simple Things, Rosaria. I'm there with you on that calm day at the dock. Thank you.

I'll take the same place you have pictured. I go to Lake Michigan and fish from the dock for salmon. 10,000 casts for each fish. But it is just being there and then at sunset when the boats start coming in and the lights in the steeple of the church and other lights go on--that is a happy time.

Great photo and I can just picture you right there.

Ripples. I want ripples in the water.

Walking the beach with my friends next week is high up there.

It is a lovely, calm photo.
Water is calming as long as you haven't fallen in it or anything.

Nuts in May

I have to say there is NOTHING better for me than dolphin watching at sea - Love, love, LOVE it!

Watching the birds in the morning while I have my coffee.

Tom Bailey said...

The simple things that keep me going? A pull-up bar, a big cup of green tea, phone calls from friends and viewing blogs of really interesting people.

The water looks so calm it looks like it is a set up for a big storm in a movie or something.

Thanks for sharing,
Tom Bailey

What makes me happy?
1. When Hubby asks; " are you my girl"? Forever?......

2. A great book and a cup of good coffee.....

3.Standing back and looking at a completed project that turns out sometimes even better than my vision of it!

4. A couple of free hours to sit and cruise all my favorite blogs which is what I'm doing now!

5. Most of all when my grands call and tell me; " I love you Nana"..

Simple things for me:
1. A cup of coffee
2. Time in the boat on the lake, catching fish or no.
3. An hour in church service

Dear Rosaria,
It takes very little to make me happy - very little! Snow falling on pines, a rainbow, deer prancing cross my lawn, laughter, fresh rain.

Happiness, for me at least, is not attached to any specific activity. Even in a beautiful landscape, if something is on my mind, I can't enjoy the scenery.

Happiness is elusive, it comes and goes almost of its own free will, or so it seems to me.

I prefer satisfaction to happiness. Completing a task, cooking dinner, taking a walk all bring satisfaction no matter what my mood is. I am for the pursuit of satisfaction.

So calm and serene. Beautiful. My list of simple things is up too.

CambridgeLady said...

Family, nature, warm sunshine, seaside, a great book and good food and wine.

Reading your Blog makes me happy : )

Gorgeously soothing shot! For me: calm waters, dappled forest shade, tropical beaches and turquoise lagoons, a good, simple and laid back meal...

Pleasure doesn't get much easier than those few things.

A good book while listening to a favorite recording.

Oh this is an easy question.

When we were young and newlyweds I would say sex.

When we were middle aged I would say empty nest.

When we are old, as I am, I would say a good sandwich.

"'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free..." A good walk, a book and a cup of tea. Any combo, any order.
Great photo. Thank you for the reminder.

a bad day fishing, crabbing, sitting on a dock of a bay...is better than a good day at work!
