Maybe ...

We have talked quite a bit about the future, career and life plans.... Doing what we like, what we are good at and our search for happiness... And yet isn't happiness the thing between intervals of unhappiness?

Maybe all this obsession with life planning is fundamentally wrong. Maybe the beauty of life stands in that uncertainty of the path that we go through and the lesson that we learn throughout that journey..... Maybe there is no perfect path....

Maybe, happiness is a rational matter and can not be planned. We can take some measures to increase the chance of happiness. Yet at the end, it can be achieved by very tiny matters and can be easily taken away in the perfectly planned conditions.

So maybe after all, we should not make a huge deal of all these long term plans. Maybe it's better that we reduce our prejudgments about all routes.... Consider everything....Maximize our effort and our options and in the moment of choice, go one way or the other based on what's in hand. Then the rest lies in the hand of our passionate effort in whatever path that we choose....Do our best and don't forget at the end what matters is the journey, not the end result...

It happened on February 7th

The drama was filled with that piano and orchestra and the light works! It was a dramatic silence....and the rest was your warm breath that mesmerized me the most ... Later, you told me the joy and pleasure is a combination of reality and imagination. In those minutes, I didn't need any imagination or empathy. It was all real.
