In a world that is perpetually searching for Happiness, he teaches me about finding joy in simple things every day – a hug, a kiss, a long walk, running barefeet in the grass, a whiff of fragrance from the evening primrose..
He shows me each day what living life to the fullest means, why trust is synonymous with love and belonging, that friendship is acceptance and how words are an unnecessary ingredient when there are soul connections….
What is in a Date? It would be just as mundane as any other.
Or would it?
UNESCO declared this date in 1996 as World Book and Copyright Day to pay worldwide tribute to books, authors, publishers and to collectively encourage ‘discovery of The Pleasure of Reading’ !
But it is only now that the world is largely waking up to discover why!!
23rd April 2016
The hashtags of social media spread far more rapidly than a wild fire!! The google logo stimulates speedier research than frontpage news headlines in conventional newspapers!
400 years since the 23rd of April 1616.
400 years since the death of William Shakespeare. And less famously of Cervantes and Garcilaso de la Vega !
Have you wondered what Shakespeare would have to say had he been around to see himself trending on social media ?
Something to this effect, I’m sure…..
“You speak an infinite deal of nothing.”

I haven’t written anything yet and it’s almost 10 pm.!
There are currently three books in my Amazon cart!
My 500 ml water bottle is half full still!
I forgot to get lunch YET again!
Read just two pages today of the third book I started this month!
But YES! I haven’t been on FB all day.
HAPPINESS IS :
Finding a new book on Amazon, having it wait for you at the gate the next day and discovering it is one of the loveliest first few pages of a ‘ first book’ you’ve ever read!
