Things that make me smile.

I wrote a post about my header. It tried to make some valid points, but it ended up falling a bit flat.

Blah.

It made me feeling boring –

When actually, my header makes me smile.

A huge warm cheek-crinkling head-lifting smile, like when you’re so excited about something that it feels like you will burst.

So I’ve started again.

Fresh sheet. Stripped back. Straight to the point, which is not as complicated as I had been making it; but, in essence remains the same –

My header makes me smile.

It makes me smile because it represents the adventure that I’d like this blog to be about; and because it was drawn by someone that I think is great. The latter is about connectivity – and the former, about exploring my new life. The first, visible to all; the second, that fuzzy feeling that comes from feeling that someone out there cares.

I’m aiming for more of both this year.

2011 is not about seriousness, which I have had more than enough of.

It is about adventures, connectivity and things that make me smile.
