Simple, Cheap Entertainment

Recently, I sat in the living room with my dog Sophie watching a squirrel fill its nest with nuts I hid under trees and bushes in the front yard. We must have watched for over an hour, Sophie even more intent than I was. I had such a good time. Sophie had a good time. The squirrel seemed to be enjoying itself as well. Later I realized that an hour plus went by faster than the time I spent at a recent movie theater watching a film that took millions to produce. Simple pleasures are sometimes the most satisfying. Life is Good.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
