Growing Happiness

Happiness
is neither virtue nor
pleasure nor this thing nor
that but simply growth, we are
happy when we are growing.

William Butler Yeats

I met this little boy when I went to visit my father late last summer. This adorable child was as cute and expressive as he appears in this picture. When it was time to board the ferry for a trip to the mainland, he hefted on his backpack and was 75 feet ahead of his mom and brothers. He marched right on as he knew exactly what he was doing. . .and he did! Not bad for a three year old!
