WHAT: Austin weekend
WHY: One of my happiest memories is when I was struggling in a job Iâ€™d grown to hate. I came back from a staff retreat, tired and dejected. My wife immediately kidnapped me and drove me to Austin, where we spent the weekend (which happened to be my birthday) with four of my oldest and dearest friends. There was good food, laughter, old stories and more laughter.
WHO: Stewart Smith, Tyler
WHAT: â€śMy Neighbor Totoroâ€ť
WHY: The movie that never fails to make me happy is Hayao Miyazakiâ€™s masterpiece, â€śMy Neighbor Totoro.â€ť It doesnâ€™t matter how glum of a day Iâ€™ve had or how down in the dumps I might be. Whenever I pop in â€śTotoro,â€ť it puts a huge smile on my face. Itâ€™s a warm blanket of a movie.
WHO: Sam Hopkins, Jacksonville
WHAT: Celtic folk music
WHY: All Celtic folk music makes me happy. My favorite composer is William Jackson of Scotland, who wrote the â€śSt. Mungo Suiteâ€ť in honor of the city of Glasgow. The fifth movement is entitled â€śThe Fishâ€ť and has Gaelic vocals by Mae McKenna that are beautiful to hear. William Jackson plays graceful harp with the orchestral accompaniment. Whenever I need to relax or gain peace of mind, I listen to this piece, and that is almost daily.
WHO: : Sherri Horne, Tyler
WHAT: Lunch time
WHY: Lunch has always been my favorite meal. You eat a healthy lunch, and it will carry you through the afternoon.
