The Iris , a Giver of Delight

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happyness…I don’t feel like “dropping the y and adding an I” today. Besides I think it looks better this way. You really see the word HAPPY. In English we add the suffix ness to change an adjective to a noun. Let’s forget about that and just consider HAPPY as a word capable of being an adjective and a noun, and maybe even a verb. That would be cool.


It has been overcast and rainy for several weeks now and the lack of sun shine seems to be taking a toll on my ability to maintain a healthy mental attitude. In other words it is driving me bonkers! I was hoping for the sun to at least show itself for a few moments in some magical break in the clouds. It was even going to be okay if the sky didn’t erupt into Leonard Cohen singing “Halleluiah”. Alas it did not happen. I wandered the old streets with my camera in hand when I chanced upon a most magnificent iris. It sure didn’t need to be illuminated by rays of a sun to reflect some inner glory. It was perfect. I stood there just looking at it for a while before I took its picture.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and still do.

Love, Light and Laughter
