The Kalypso"The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things." Henry Ward Beecher
I saw this amazing car today in a neighborhood parking lot. Someone had spent their time and talent to transform an ordinary Volvo station wagon into an extraordinarily whimsical vehicle, named The Kalypso!
Viewing this spectacular car parked next to regular cars seemed so out of context, like something out of a Dr. Seuss story book. The hood was adorned with rainbow colored glittering stones and waves were painted as a decorative border all around. Inside and out, tremendous attention was paid to every detail.
It was parked in front of a shoe shop so I walked inside and inquired "who owns that awesome car?" They said they didn't know but thought the owner was having coffee nearby. I headed for the closest Starbucks to see if there might be someone who looked like they matched this car. I thought whoever utilized their power of artistic expression to create this work of living art was someone worth meeting.
I asked around but unfortunately didn't find them. I quickly jotted a few words and stuck a note beneath the windshield wiper. "Thank You for brightening my day! Your car made me smile and it's fabulous to see that someone is making magic from the mundane. I hope you find joy today such as you have given me."
You never know what will bring you joy but it can be found on a daily basis. Sometimes you create it; sometimes you appreciate someone else's creation. In every case happiness abounds when we appreciate the simple moments that lighten our day. Accumulate those moments and you will have a joy filled life.BEST-PHOTO
