Happiness is finding a rare flower with a little butterfly.


Have a nice weekend all fine Flickr friends.

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!!

Felicidad al recibir buenas noticias ;)

Have a great new week everyone. I have an air guy coming over shorty to look at my unit, so I will catch up with everyone after he leaves.

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.

- William Saroyan

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 ..


"If you want to be happy, be"

(Leo Tolstoy)

So...Why don´t you start just now??

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.

For some, it is as simple as making splashes and bubbles on Happy Fence Friday (HFF). I am sure I have a real HFF photo somewhere in the library but sorry, I could not look for one before the end of the day. Nevertheless, I hope you will like the big smile of this bufflehead and the splashes and bubbles he is creating. Hope you are having a great weekend. Press L for a larger view.

When you smile a beam of happiness come shining through onto people near you, when you laugh a wave of joy come crushing in onto friends around you. And when you do smile and laugh, remember it is not only you whom you have brought the joy and laughter to.

Happiness is a dog with a "Heart Shaped " tongue, as Atka is shown here with his. I found this to be quite unique and have never seen this before on any dog I've ever photographed.He is truly one of a kind !!

"Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product."

Eleanor Roosevelt


I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs

I packed some things just what I need, only bare necessities

Asked Mrs. Walsh to feed my cat, call landlord Tate to tell him that

I'm going home where my people live, I need a little bit of happiness, yeah

Love what makes you happy, but not love your happiness.

Ama ciò che ti rende felice, ma non amare la tua felicità.

"Success is getting what you want.

Happiness is liking what you get."

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr., American author


“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! :)

I love this shot of Rupert. He looks so content basking in his sun drenched land!
