“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.” – Michael J. Fox
I could have become very unhappy on this trip because of a certain expectation — that the aspen leaves would have been present on the trees, creating a bright yellow band on the distant shoreline.

Instead, an even more glorious show of yellow beyond my expectations appeared reflected in the icy covering on North Lake.
Yes, yes, yes, I do accept this, with great gratitude and happiness.
