“Happiness runs in a circular motion,
Thought is like a little boat upon the sea,
Everybody is a part of everything anyway,
You can have everything if you let yourself be.”


A song of prayer written by Donovan after his trip in 1969 to India with The Beatles (with Graham Nash and Paul McCartney’s brother Mike on backing vocals).


Was listening to this yesterday and thought about Happiness.  What is it?  A question right up there with “What’s the Meaning of Life?”.


In my ongoing quest for simplicity, a priority in the ageing journey, I think Happiness (for everyone) has three cornerstones; you can be truly Happy when:

      You have someone to love.

      You have something to do.

      You have something to look forward to.


I have.  I am.  Hope you are too.
