March 30th National Take A Walk In A Park Day

You could take a walk anywhere today but why not make it a park!?! national park, state park, county park… it really doesn’t matter. The weather is hopefully nicer now where you live, the full color of nature is beginning to return and animals are once again out and about. It is the perfect time to get out among it and become a part of nature. It’s peaceful, calming and can bring us to an understanding of what is really important in life and what’s not. (This will vary with each and every person you talk to) Look at a tree and remember that no tow leaves are perfectly alike. There are thousands, maybe even millions of leaves in a park… do the represent the people on the earth? Think about it while you go for a walk in a park.

How to celebrate – Find a park close to you. Go for a walk. Take friends with you so you can share what you see, hear and feel.

March 21st National Fragrance Day

To smell good is an art. To capture that fragrance is being an artist. We pick and choose so much of what we like and have in life by the way it smells. If we like the smell of food, we eat it, if we like the smell of a plant, we plant it and of course, we are attracted to each other, quite often, by the way we smell.

Legend tells us that the French were among the first to use heavy perfumes. The reason of course is because they did not bathe all that often. It’s hard to be attracted to someone who stinks no matter how pretty they may be. I once knew a guy that every woman he came in contact with was attracted to him because of the way he looked, but when they got within ten feet of him they quickly changed their minds.

Naturally, as with anything in life, there are those who overkill by dosing themselves in a tub of perfume or cologne. This can be equally offensive simply because one cannot breathe around them.

And naturally there are those things in life that just stink! Our olfactory nerves in our noses pick up scents, define them as to preference, and allow us to make a choice of whether we like them or not. What may be attractive to one person, isn’t to another.

How to celebrate – Find the best scent for you and use it. Don’t test too many fragrance at one time, they will mask each other. All of those who eat tons of garlic… remember it makes you stink big time!
