The Little Things

It's amazing how "the little things" can make such a big difference in determining my feelings and mood on a day-to-day basis.

Like the other day, for example, when I was walking around Downtown Brooklyn. I found two great "bargains" in the same afternoon: The first was a cheap(er) Starbucks(!) where drinks were, on average, fifty cents ($0.50) cheaper than any other Starbucks I've ever been to -- and that says a lot! The other bargain was at a shop I like, which was having a great sale on tops! :o) In the grand scheme of things these "small joys" may seem irrelevant, but for some reason it made me feel good that afternoon and made my day seem a little brighter.

Unfortunately, there are also times when "the little things" can (seemingly) ruin my day as well. Like when it rains. I never like having to walk around outside in the rain -- who does? -- especially when I am dressed up. Or the other day, when I was at the big Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village, and my camera stopped working for some unknown reason. I was so mad! The parade was such a great show, and I really wanted to take pictures of all the amazing costumes and puppets...but my damn camera started having problems and nothing came out. :o( It's a shame, too, because I was looking forward to posting some of the "highlights" of the parade up here, on my blog. Instead, I just have a picture of my cat, Odin, in his Halloween "costume."


(Actually, it's just an elaborate, fabric collar with little "spiders" on the ends. Unfortunately, you can't really see the collar details in the picture.)
