Have you ever noticed that bikers, walkers and runners wearing headsets look decidedly less relaxed and happy than those without cords sticking out of their ears?

On more than one occasion, I’ve noticed that those sprouting ear buds feature frowns on their faces as they move through their paces.

In contrast, those without a techno-gadget clipped to their belt, or held in their hand, seem more inclined to radiate happiness as they commune with sky, trees, water, birds, flowers, and the occasional splash of flying fish.

Connecting with nature connects us with the moment.  As we tune in to the here and now, our inner bliss surfaces suffusing us with joy.

No iPod required.

Aah . . . that’s better!
