You Say Pistachio




I was at the beach the other day.  I was so tired, I was punchdrunk.  But it was great to be at the beach, very healing.  I got excited when I found some seashells.  I carried them for awhile, thrilled with my treasure.




Then I looked down at them in my hand and saw what they really were: pistachio shells.  I laughed hysterically at myself.  It was great fun.  It just proves that we see what we want to see.  We believe what we want to believe.  Would I have been equally happy to know I was picking up pistachio shells when I first found them?  No.  But I was happy in the moment, and now I sort of wish I had kept them, just to remind myself that we create our own happiness.  Life is just a bowl of pistachios.  ;)

  1. I just want to tell you when we followed each other on twitter, I am @clearleadership; anyway, I just want you to know I appreciate you. I check your website about once a week, and your website, and especially the music calms my soul, and always makes me smile.
    Thank you for everything...

  4. Happy belated Birthday, Lori.
    I just found this site.
    Sorry about Little Olive. I love my cats too. We have a very special relationship.
    You live at a beach in San Francisco, and I think, how wonderful!
    Paris doesn't appeal to me at all.
    There's something about the ocean that calls me. I yearn for the sea.
    But in my present incarnation, a beach just isn't in the works.
    Maybe someday. You never know what's going to happen.
    In the meantime I will enjoy the beach vicariously through you.
    All the best.
