  •  siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh I'm gonna take a wild guess (8+ / 0-)

    that you do not live in NE.  

    I'm awaiting the bloomage here.  There is a rumour that the forsythia might be a week from flowering, but I've been lied to before.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    But I wish you joy in your blooms.  :-)

      I live on the opposite coast. I don't think I could live comfortably in the Northeast. I don't do well with cold, or with hot and humid. This lets out the upper parts of the Midwest as well. I don't like extremely hot and dry either so the Southwest is out. It's a good thing I like it here. I plan on staying.

        one way to ensure a happy life.

        I seem to have wanderlust.  So far this seems to be where I am meant to be.

        The Universe has an uncanny way of surprising me just when I think I know what's going on.

        Don't be surprised if I start posting from Lapland one of these days!

          to ensure a happy life. I just don't want to be physically uncomfortable while I'm dealing with everything else.

            the Californians post and pine for a longer growing season.

            Then I open the window and the cold, clear night air pours and and I remember why I'm here.

            is put as many things in place to make it possible. And not all of it is.

            I promise you...almost all of the things that ensure a way to find happiness come from "inside".

            There are people who are ill, wounded, broke, and struggling...and who are profoundly happy in spite of it.

            There are also people who are healthy, whole, and financially well-off....and who are incapable of happiness.

            None of us gets out of here alive...what matters is what we do while we're here.

            Kindness matters.  Compassion matters.  Decency matters.

            Working to ensure that we all have an equal shot at life....matters.

            Find your passion...work it.

            And at 4 in the morning, that's about the best I can offer. :-)
