“Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour (Walt Whitman).”
How many time do we think or say, ‘I will be happy when?’ I know I have done it many times. I need to be frequently reminded of the wisdom in Walt Whitman’s words: ‘Happiness is found in this hour.’ It’s all around me. All I have to do is open my eyes and heart to it. It was in the three mockingbirds I saw this morning and in the red-tailed hawk sitting in my live oak tree waiting for it’s breakfast.
