What Bucket List?



Why I am laughing:
My hearing's gone,
My nerves are shot,
My bucket is empty
And I hate these sandals.
There are worse definitions
Of happiness.

  1. Is your bucket soon to be filled or are you just carrying to make yourself laugh?

  2. I'll have to return the compliment: delightful photo! Well done, Norma.

    And, of course, well done you with the verse.

    1. I don't know if it can be reliably taught, Ygraine. Happiness is not always rational. Seems to come unannounced from within.

  4. What you wrote, Geo, are not worse definitions of happiness.

    Happiness is not having problems, it is the state of having problems AND still being happy. Which, of course, you are!

    1. Only sometimes, KK. Problems usually make me sad, jumpy --apeshit, I guess. But sometimes laughter happens anyway.
