Looking at the World

The older I get, and boy am I getting old, the more I come to understand that happiness is found in how I look at the world.

I see a world filled with diverse people.  Many of them have figured out how to do something better than I have, if I can find and learn that, my life is better.  

I hear a world of diverse sounds.  The rhythm  and beat of music, traffic and daily life differs as I explore this great adventure of life. I am loving online streaming music, I can mix something old and something new every day, hearing the world in new ways.  

I see differences in light, color, art, architecture and landscape. When a travel I take pictures, lots and lots of pictures.  When I look back through the archive of images, I see the awe and wonder of the adventure of the world, I catch a glimpse into the lives of the people of the world.   

My perception of the world is colored by my experiences.  My perception is my reality.  The deeper and more diverse my adventure, the more I see the good and happiness in the world.
