Happiness Is....

I have no idea! I can't remember the last time I was truly happy. Happiness is fleeting. Like gossamer webs glistening with early morning dew before being struck by the harshness of the sun, happiness soon disintegrates when rebuffed by the severity of reality.

Happiness would be a world free from wars, poverty, prejudices, violence, suspicions.

North Korea has warned of its looming launch of a long-range missile. At their missile-testing facility they are presently assembling and fueling the missile with a reported possible range of 6000k. This might make the North Koreans happy and also Iran and Pakistan whom NK supplies but the rest of us aren't impressed by this news. Serious implications threaten. North Korea's ambassador here in Australia didn't instill confidence either when questioned by a reporter about the possibility of the launch. He's obviously a man of a few words..."wait and see." ...was his abrupt reply. happiness from that news story.

Little happiness can be gleaned from any of today's headlines, which are not much different from yesterday's, or two days ago, last week's or last year's, for that matter. No doubt tomorrow's will be similar. Sad, isn't it?

I guess it means if a happy moment comes along we should seize it, embrace it and carefully store it away in our memory in preparation for the unhappines to follow, which is guaranteed to come.

Happiness is love...being loved and loving in return. Happiness is recognising and accepting love. Happiness would be a world full of love and understanding, free from hate, distrust, ignorance, apathy, tragedy, depravity, brutality, disease.

Happiness is...........
