Creating Delight is an offshoot of our Wiser Now website with its uplifting content for many settings including the weekly e-newsletter Wait Lifters for relieving boredom and anxiety wherever you might find yourself waiting. When you can’t change the environment, change the atmosphere. The Creating Delight website is focused specifically on gratitude, humor, and play – on all things delightful. The Wiser Now website is much broader in intent and topics, covering almost anything that might amuse and enlighten from pumpkin kayaking to punny chocolate pigs and from duct tape to guacamole.

Also an offshoot of the Wiser Now website is our Caregiving Website with its emphasis on providing practical information and nurturing the partnership between caregivers and care-receivers.

Why delight?

I could have chosen any synonym for delight, such as happiness, joy, elation, and amusement, but I have always been partial to the word delight, because like other light words – daylight, sunlight, moonlight, starlight, twilight, candlelight, highlights, lighthearted, enlighten – it brings an uplifting clarity to life, plus the bonus of being unexpected. If we can be delighted daily and bring delight to others, our lives will be rich indeed.
