- I’m not happy
- You’re not
- Not at all, it seems.
- You’re happy enough, no?
- No. I don’t have dreams anymore and all my days feel the same
- Yes I know
- I really think that you coming to my life will make me happy
- I am in your life
- No, I want you here. I want to see you every day. I want to be happy with you.
- Ok will do.
- I’m not a happy man. Help me change that?
- I’ll be happy to do that.
- Are you happy?
- Yeah.
- Why?
- Look at what I have

Hmm, this post makes total sense to me now ... :))
It is beautifully put into words as well.
I keep thinking of that hilltop, overseeing the ocean.
Maybe you'll have to climb together the hilltop first, look around and see the vista before making further decisions.

dear 2:21 am :)))
maybe you're still climbing yourself. alone or with someone, sometimes this is only complementary and sometimes you absolutely need to see the ocean through someone else's eyes to know how wonderful it is. life is full of surprises. i'm just hoping the ocean in my eyes or his will be tempting enough to make the trip of a lifetime :)

get some sleep my dear.

good thursday morning. it is 9:38 a.m. and my kids and i have been lounging around the bed for a couple hours now. the most enjoyable morning is the first day of winter (christmas) vacation.

this also is happiness.

happiness is in the eye of the beholder... or was it beauty? I wonder.

could you be happy with pain and suffering? could you be miserable with peace and harmony? It is all around you constantly, every condition, but you choose which to focus on and which emotion to indulge in to create your happiness or your misery.

i know that line!
it's from an OLD OLD poem:

"i am an insane rectangular joke
in the slender grease shaft of this age
for the tender vittles of the civilized"

happiness is sharing a cigarette with a rat.
