“Someone asked me yesterday, What was the happiest time of your life?
I said, What? The happiest time?
Why do you tie ‘time’ with ‘happiness’?
I am happiness.”
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Just three more days to go, and The Ride II begins as my horseless wagon and I hit the road once again. Time for the final organizing and making-sure-it-all-fits before I start loading; a final load of laundry, a washing and waxing of Miss Gracie, and last lunches and dinners with friends. All my worldly goods – all I own – now lie within those silver lines (and just 28″ high) on the floor of my spare room. You know, the truth-of-the-matter is we don’t need nearly as much as we think we do to be deeply and genuinely happy. No, not even close.
