I Am

You are your best audience he said to me, with a big smile.

I should hope so came out of my mouth before my brain engaged.

We kept swimming, and I kept thinking.  By the end of the next lap, I was ready.

If I didn't find myself amusing, if I didn't like what I thought, how awful would that be?

And we stopped for a while and thought of the people who were always so negative, who never had positive energy, let alone positive thoughts to share.

I'm really glad that I like what I say, and how I say it.

FlapJilly spends time alone, with makeup and fancy clothes and jewelry and hair accessories.  By the time she comes down to share the beauty, she's already had her own personal, private adventure.

She's her own best audience, too.

Talking to Little Cuter while the kids ate dinner tonight, Giblet was laughing and wiggling and having a grand old time.  No one was paying much attention.  He was happy as a clam.

Talk about being your own best audience.


  1. Interesting concept, being one's own best audience. I'll have to mull that over.
    I do a lot of mulling over, thinking. Is that being one's own audience?

    1. Yes, that's part of it. Living in your own head is lovely, if you enjoy the thoughts. I bet you come up with some interesting notions - and you're proud of them. THAT"s being your best audience.

  2. Yes, I am quite happy with my own company. I have always been able to entertain myself.

    1. Me, too. A good book (many of them your recommendations) or a craft project or just watching the clouds (your front porch pictures).
