A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Saturday’s Mix–28 July 2017

Welcome back for another addition of Saturday’s Mix. Let’s get happy! It seems like the news has been pretty depressing lately, so let’s get happy!

One example of a happy poem would be Walt Whitman’s Give me the Splendid, Silent Sun

Give me the splendid silent sun with all his beams full-dazzling,
Give me autumnal fruit ripe and red from the orchard,
Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows,
Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape,
Give me fresh corn and wheat, give me serene-moving animals teaching
content,
Give me nights perfectly quiet as on high plateaus west of the
Mississippi, and I looking up at the stars,
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can
walk undisturb’d,
Give me for marriage a sweet-breath’d woman of whom I should never tire,
Give me a perfect child, give me away aside from the noise of the
world a rural domestic life,
Give me to warble spontaneous songs recluse by myself, for my own ears only,
Give me solitude, give me Nature, give me again O Nature your primal
sanities!

Of course, Pharrell Williams makes you want to dance with his version of Happy.

Whatever it is that makes you happy is what you should write about this week. Whether it’s poetry or prose, we want to leave with a smile on our face! As always, feel free to use one of the images for inspiration

    I love Pharrell Williams Happy…… it never fails to get my feet tapping and has to be the best spirit lifter song ever!
