On The Road

After a few weeks on the road and after a few days of being back at home, the trip just keeps getting better and better. It's amazing how repeating the same great stories over and over helps you to forget the not-so-great stories.

"Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you remember." Oscar Levant

I used to think that I was an easy-going positive person who loves to face adversity and adventure on the road. I am happiest when travelling with my backpack on my back waiting for the next crazy scene to show itself.

But perhaps that happiness is just a manifestation of my failing memory. Heck, if that's the case, fail, fail away.

welcome home!

I always loved this quote on happiness:

“Happiness equals reality minus expectations”

so true!

I was just talking to someone about exactly that tonight. It is so true!

Glad you are back safe and sound! Looking forward to hearing the "Happy" stories and the not so happy ones too.
