International Be Positive Day

Robyn Campbell and Sharon Mayhew, two of the loveliest children's writers and friends I know, have declared today International Be Positive Day.

It's a day to be positive, to encourage one another, to share the happy, through twitter, Facebook, and your blog.  Will you join us?

I walked this path in Laguardia, Spain last May. When I think of this place, I think, here, is where dreams seem possible.

The dirt is thick sandy desert rushing into shrubbed meadows, lake, then mountain rock. There are jungle green grape vines, technicolor sky, and storybook clouds.  Nearby, a gardener tends to his roses, and they are larger and brighter than any other I've seen.

When I think of this place, I think dream big. I think, it is possible for the sky to open up to us, for us to see how endless it really is.

Do you have a place where it feels possible to dream bigger?


  1. Wow, that is gorgeous--just your pictures made me feel happy!
    Even though I wasn't aware of the special day, I did post something plain ol' inspirational on my blog today, too. :)

  2. Beautiful!!!! I do have a special place where I can dream. When I can't get there physically, I go there mentally. All it takes is a little sunshine and heat on my face and I can be there. :)

  3. Two postcard-worthy pictures. :)

    Let's see... yes, I have a place to dream bigger: in the mountains of Colorado. But when I can't escape there, I will always, always find inspiration walking around the city of Chicago.

  4. Gorgeous. I wrote about breast cancer; is that positive??? :)

  5. I wasn't aware of the special day either. Your photos bring the dream to life.

    My place to dream big: Ireland, on the Cliffs of Mohr.
