Well, it's been a long hard week and I'm glad it's the weekend. But the week was definitely lightened by starting my online silliness course on Wednesday. And it has helped me to realise a few things.

I realised that I was so disorganised that I hadn't got any of the supplies in that I needed.
I realised that being silly is both hard and easy.
I realised that letting go is fun.
I realised that I don't have to try to be good at everything.
I realised that the less I try the more I can achieve sometimes.
I realised that I can be creative when I let myself be.
I realised that I should really buy a printer.
I realised that although my mobile phone takes pretty good pictures, a camera is better for detail and colour.
I realised that being silly frees the mind.

And I realised that finding joy (for me) is my responsibility and no-one else's is. I have a pretty good life. My crises aren't (crises). I am exceptionally lucky. I should smile and laugh more.

I'm looking forward to my month of silliness - I'll not bore you with all the details, but every now and again, I'll share my silliness. And if you want to keep up, log on to my Flickr page and check out the Silliness set!

bravo but don't worry when 'in the moment' things can seem all-consuming.

silliness helps (yoursister and nephew are joining you on that journey)
