… when I walk around the lake near my home and see a solitary heron or egret standing motionless in the water.


-- James McCullough, Vernon Hills

…  when my Mac computer suddenly stops misbehaving and acts like it's the robot and I'm the human being instead of the other way around.

-- Gloria Kaplan Sulkin, Chicago

... when I go for my morning walk and the wind is blowing the fragrant smell of flowers toward me.

-- John Dawson, Oak Park


… going to a new grocery store in my neighborhood at 10:30 a.m. and there's only one checkout counter open.

-- Juanita Smith Duncan, Chicago
