Enjoying what makes us happy

This is it -- so have fun whenever it's possible.

I found a bunch of posts I did in 2011 that were just
one word on a video, and then an explanation.  This 
was supposed to be a longer one from that set, but it
didn't work, so I redid it tonight.  It seems like 
a great message -- especially after another day spent in part
trying unsuccessfully to get a short video of New York City
up to show you. Still it's been a lovely day -- coffee with the
women in the neighbourhood, and a party at night with another 
group of lovely neighbours. 

The quote from the former post in 2011 said this:

"There's a tendency in art to worry too much about
whether what we're doing is worthy, or whether
it will stand the test of time.  Ultimately does it
stand the test of enjoyment?  Did you have
fun creating it?  Does it make you happy looking
at it?  The test of time happens after this party
is over.  Meanwhile enjoy the dancing.  It's a
short ride on this little planet.  That's my cat
Timbah.  He works hard at having fun.  A good

I didn't get Timbah the cat into the remake video.  But he
still works hard at having fun.

Have an enjoying dancing day.
