Filtering

Needing to filter out all the mainstream media I went off hunting for some good news stories for a change yesterday and came across the Ever Widening Circles site to which I've now subscribed. Its content looks to be uplifting and anything that keeps your pecker up at the moment has to be a good thing as far as I'm concerned. One of the articles suggested listening to the Ted talk on Youtube by Ingrid Fetell Lee about joy and where to find it. It's only a few minutes long, but I found it most interesting. Many of us find joy from the same sort of things. That got me wondering....if I had to pick one photo to spark joy which one would it be?

This one I think....my young son laughing away whilst playing with a washing up bowl full of water in my parents' garden.

  1. I get the 'Positive News' newsletter (email) which covers normal things which get missed out of the news, really good and positive stories, and I find that rather refreshing - the strap line is 'what when right this week' https://bit.ly/3eAVgNr worth a look x

  2. Photos of our now grown children sure is a joy. I think I may take a look through soe albums this week-a much more positive thing t do than have the news on.

  4. What a happy moment! One can feel the sun and hear the splashing and laughing! Our family has also chosen to avoid discussing the news of the outside world in recent weeks. We've been exchanging pix and anecdotes about kids -- ours and those of anyone else who wants to take refuge with us. I've contributed a few "sploot" images of my cats. :)
