Do You Have 8 Minutes?


Hi there,

With travels over (for now) and writing daily for hours, this blog takes a different tack too.

For openers, I want to share an absolutely marvelous film (7-minutes short) called On Knowing Happiness.  It comes from Nic Askew’s Soul Biography series.

My response from posting it on Facebook was one of deep appreciation, so I felt it imperative to share with those who have opted to pass on the Social Media site.

Should you choose not to watch, let me share with you Kathryn Temple’s two big questions. Questions, supposedly, asked by Ancient Egyptians at the Gateway to Heaven:

* Have you found the joy in your life?

* Has your life brought joy to others?

That’s just in the first couple of minutes. Please check it out, and let me know what you think.

P.S. I have a bit of a ‘thing’ about the word happiness. I prefer joy. The way I see it, happiness is fleeting, transient, more easily lost, but joy resides deep in the bones. It is our way of being in the world.
