Finding Joy in the Journey April 6, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Happiness.

Life is a journey . . . not a destination.   When we stop striving to reach some distant shore, we become fully engaged HERE and NOW.

We learn to enjoy the journey as each moment unfolds into the next.

 A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. ~ Lao Tzu

The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place. ~ Barbara DeAngelis

All Aboard!

A Taxing Day April 6, 2012

Today’s the day.  I shall complete my taxes . . . while  attempting to keep my sense of humor (and sanity) intact.

To that end, here’s another gem from Granny1947:

To celebrate their 50th anniversary, an elderly couple, who had been childhood sweethearts, walked hand in hand back to their old school.

There, they found the old desk on which Andy had carved “I love you, Sally.”

On their way home, they stumbled across a bag of money.

Sally picked it up, took it home, and counted the money ~ fifty thousand dollars!

A thousand dollars for each year of their marriage.

Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back.  Let’s call the police.”

“Nothing doing . . . finders keepers.”  With that, Sally hid the money and the bag in their attic.

The next day, two police officers knocked on their door.  “We’re doing a canvas of the neighborhood . . . did either of you find a bag of money that fell out of an armored car yesterday?”

Sally shook her head, “No.”

Andy gulped, “She’s lying. We found it and she hid it up in the attic.”

Sally smiled, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”

One of the officers turned to Andy, “Tell us the story from the beginning.”

“Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday . . .”

The officer grinned, “You don’t say,” then turned to his partner, “Let’s go!”

Aah . . . that’s better!
