Happiness?

January 25, 2011

"Happiness is essentially a state of going somewhere, wholeheartedly, one-directionally, without regret or reservation” -- William H. Sheldon

“Happiness is different from pleasure. Happiness has something to do with struggling and enduring and accomplishing” -- George Sheehan

?Cycling in Morocco

The whole morning we struggled to push our bicycles up the steep mountain pass.

Bicycling in Moroccco

Finally…the top! Stopping to rest, we looked out over a completely new landscape filled with barren brown desert and Berber villages clinging to the mountain sides. As we descended I just thought, “This is happiness!”
