Where do we go for happiness?

Our society has inundated us with the importance of importance. 

We have been conditioned to believe in the big, the fast,

the expensive and the far away. 

I’m still convinced that if you have to move

even ten inches from where you are now

in order to be happy, you never will be.

Life becomes precious and more special to us

when we look for the little everyday miracles

and get excited again about the privilege of simply being human.
