Little Bits Of Light
Happy Flippin St. Patrick’s Day to all of you lovely Light Chasers! Matters not if you’re Irish or not this day, so don your green, have a Guinness (they apparently make a zero alcohol version that tastes amazing too) and celebrate the Emerald Isle. Why not?

Here’s the pot-of-gold at the end of this rainbow, kids:
World Nature Photography Awards - In another version of this life (and maybe the future of this one) I’m going to be a wildlife photographer. I love it, so much more than almost all other forms. One day. Anyhow, here’s the winners of the World Nature Photography Awards, and can I just say, WOW.
Seek Fun, Not Happiness - Maybe we’ve been doing it wrong all this time, always striving for constant happiness. Maybe, if we aimed a bit differently, the results would come out different too, and who knows, maybe better? This article is about the positive fall-out that comes if we seek fun, and not happiness. FUN, it turns out, is actionable, not just vaguely positive, and can have quick results. Check this one out.
Build Healthier Phone Habits - Be honest here, raise your hand if you need healthier habits with your mobile phones? Yep. Should be all of us. I think working on this, will also help improve the one above it, and the happiness that follows. Great tips here.
The Benefits Of Giving A Fuck - I love this article, and I love that it’s counter to the popular notion of NOT giving a fuck that has dominated book titles over the last few years. This is about the actual, and often surprising, benefits of truly caring, of gratitude, and of even being grateful of the things you happen to dislike. Whodathunkit?
The Case For Hanging Out - All this social media nonsense has created a crisis, and it’s starting to really show its teeth here in the USA. Americans have less friends now than ever, and we hang out less often. This beautiful article is about how maybe the cure for all our ailments is simple, it’s just hanging out again. I love this.
Baby by Hannah Cohen - I dig this flavor. She and I are maybe gonna write a song together, wouldn’t that be groovy as f?
Typewriter Series Nonsense - As per usual, if you want a giggle before your poetry, this is the place. Click the first, scroll through to the rest.Tiktok failed to load.
