With all the negativity about the economy, I wanted to try and post a cheerful picture today. Actually, it is harder than you think to find cheerful pictures. Lots of pictures of people partying hard in the 1920's but we all know where that led. Not a lot of cheerful pictures from the 1930's can be found. Of course, the 1940's brought World War II. If we go back to the 1910's we had the flu pandemic, and World War I. There are lots of pictures from the 1860's, but that decade certainly had its unpleasantness. So, in the end, I landed on this picture. It shows an older couple taking a nap together in a park after a picnic. Maybe this picture really captures what it is all about . . . in a world of turmoil and upheaval, seeking out moments to enjoy the small pleasures of life.
