We have wants and desires that are far beyond our reach – that 100 foot (30 meter) yacht, that palace on the Riviera or winning the lottery.
None of these are going to happen but we keep wishing.
Yet, we overlook the simple but wonderful pleasures of everyday life:
- The sound of gentle rain in the early morning
- Watching a sunset on a mild fall evening
- The distant sound of a train whistle from the open window of your room
- Being awakened by a gentle caress on your cheek…
… unless you happen to be in jail at the time.
