So, Kane, Matt and I went on a big road trip a week ago, including a kite day at Brunswick Heads, a quick visit to Byron Bay, and this little spot at Burleigh Heads on the way home back to Brissy. I particularly like the water flow in the foreground over the rocks on this one :>


I love South East Qld & Northern NSW!!

Happiness can come in so unexpected ways.

I hope you all find yours, no matter how tiny it presents itself, the important is how big it feels inside.


See you in 2012. Italy here I come.


Thank you all for you kind comments. I wish you a Happy Holidays.

"Finding happiness is like finding yourself. You don't find happiness, you make happiness. You choose happiness. Self-actualization is a process of discovering who you are, who you want to be and paving the way to happiness by doing what brings YOU the most meaning and contentment to your life over the long run."


David Leonhardt

The greatest happiness you can have is

knowing that you do not necessarily require happiness.

Happiness is like a perfume, you cannot pour it all on others without allowing a few drops to fall on yourself.

Have a happy week friends and thank-you for the visit ..

Happiness is like a butterfly.

The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.

But if you turn your attention to other things,

It comes and sits softly on your shoulder.

:: " What is replenishing? What is depleting? What takes? What gives? What wrings you out and, truly, what rinses you with happiness?" {Frances Mayes} ::

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Sitting in my trailer with my puppy dog - looking out at the peaceful surroundings and watching my hubby fishing out of his canoe. That's happiness! :)

Childhood is a time of legendary status…. Childhood is a time full of life…In childhood heavens appeared in earth…after a long time I saw some happiness traveling a far away from here…..which remind my childhood also….at the same time I felt sorry for those kids of Dhaka city….who are locked up in their own home…….
