I know I have already been happy.  So can I say that anything I have not yet experienced is not really necessary in order for me to be happy?  Where do I draw the line.  I presume the best thing is not to abstain from all pleasant experiences that I have not tried.

But there are some which I have abstained from for better or worse.  And in having never had them, I do not miss them.  Perhaps the notion that I don't need them to be happy is all in my head, and really, since I even know that they exist, I should not be happy without experiencing them.  But those which I have never even been aware of, ah, those I clearly do not need.

I suppose we won't really know, and it is up to us which things are worth experiencing and which are not.  And that shapes our life.

Sometimes everything is too funny and I need to go outside and ride my bike on an isolated trail and laugh hard so I don't disturb my coworkers.  Then I return energized and satisfied.  Eventually perhaps, regular outbursts of laughter can be a normal aspect of being near other people.  Maybe it's just my own self-consciousness that prevents it.

Funny thing is, as I was typing this holding in a laugh, somebody on the other side of the wall burst out laughing.  Now I'll run downstairs and hop on my bike.

Life is like a pie where taking a slice doesn't reduce the amount that remains to be took.

Some people

There are some people who can detect the humour embedded in any scrap of English I emit, and these people often do so.  When this happens, one of life's many purposes is fulfilled.

A place for sayings

As often some witticism wants to be shared but I'm reluctant to spam the people on Facebook with it.
