Through Rose Coloured Glasses
“The Secret Society of Happy People”. The name itself intrigued me when I first saw it some ten years ago and I had to find out what the Secret Society of Happy People was all about. The more I discovered about this on-line club, the more I loved its concept.
This year, there was no gradual transformation from summer to fall. Autumn has come early and it came quickly. It seems we went to bed one night while it was summer and awoke the next morning to fall. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler and the leaves are quickly turning colour. The summer warmth has been replaced by cooler days and cold evenings.
When my sister called to say that she was coming into Prince Albert for the day, I knew that I had to find a place that would soothe and heal – a place where she could forget about her son’s recent suicide, at least for a little while. And I had just to perfect place to take her: Ben and Joni’s beautiful yard. If anything can soothe a soul, it is the peacefulness and beauty of that magical space.
