easy access to wikipedia is WAY more important than cable
and fresh fruit! I don't see how I could be happy if I could never eat fresh pineapple again
I don't comprehend how television can even compete with the Internet...hmmm, I can have information about any question I want to ask, talk to people, and find every song I've ever liked on demand plus new music...or I can watch reality tv and sitcoms. LOL.
"Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul." - Edward Abbey
I don't purport to be anyone who's consistently happy. But what I've learned is that money honestly doesn't buy you happiness.
In retrospect, the times cherished were the simplest of moments, where there was a wide open connection with loved ones or places in nature.
One such moment was on a warm summer's evening with a breeze gently blowing to cool, sitting replete on the balcony after a perfect meal. We were chatting about inconsequential topics where there were moments of contented quiet, soaking up the sunset.
Another shared moment of supreme contentment was sitting together under an outdoor umbrella, a summer rainstorm hammering all around us while we sat dry and warm, enjoying coffee and sharing ice cream.
It was supposed to mean, that when happiness is not something to be achieved or attained, you drop your desire for it. And then ultimately, feel happier. Sometimes the only way to trick yourself into giving up the idea, is to convince yourself it doesn't exist. :p
