“Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you”.
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Grab a butterfly in flight is a difficult thing, so it is with happiness.
Happiness is frantically chased, we can lurk to surprise her, manage to get it and it still slips away inexorably.
Yet it is not impossible to conquer.
It takes a little bit of patience and that light presence willl rest upon us.
Happiness is a personal thing that radiates the heart and life but it needs simplicity!
