Life is Good - Day Five

This little cricket sat on the window sill outside my room at the Casa. I don’t know who made it (probably one of the wonderful people who work at the Casa) or how long it had been there, but I loved it.

In many cultures, crickets are symbols of life and good luck. I felt my little cricket watched over me this week. (Please no one tell me it was the figure of a cockroach!)

Life is Good because everyday people take ordinary objects and create something of simple beauty. I saw this in the Mexican people: the care they took to serve beautiful meals, daily sweeping the walks and art work was everywhere! All these expression of life were joyous to me. What are my daily expressions of beauty?
