How I practice happiness
is a phrase
that I've hand stamped
on brass metal and made into CUFF
Did you know happiness is an emotion
that can, needs and must be practiced?
Instead of highlighting
I want to highlight what I did and saw this July 4th weekend
that reminded me that everywhere
In my apartment complex
at my apartment complex
a bee doing his business
3rd Street Promenade
buying a special friend a couple of books about his idol
admiring these trees
riding my bike to the beach
hanging out with my DAD at his house
He loves karoake
I like it a lot
coming home to a t-shirt I had ordered from a great shop on Etsy called
It's an awesome shop, which features calligraphy
The artist Joni James is a fantastic calligraphist
Calligraphy is a poem, phrase, or word in which the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting
is arranged in a way that creates a visual image.
The image created by the words expresses visually what the word, or words, say.
I purchased two t-shirts
Here is Miles Davis formed from calligraphy

As for my shop, I have hand stamped CUFFs that originally
