The Good Life

What is the secret to the good life? Filled with things that most satisfy Free of unnecessary worry and strife And replete with things that gratify I’m not sure I have a single answer That would fit everyone’s situations But I highly recommend adventure, Enhanced by taking good vacations! Nothing so elevates one’s life stations [Increasing understanding of a culture] Like visiting a faraway exotic nation Watching the gyrations of a dancer Can help the inquiring mind to ratify The inestimable value of individual life For the muddled, biased mind, to clarify What the secret is to the good life.

" I highly recommend adventure, Enhanced by taking good vacations!" - did you forget to add "or get a dog"? Ha!

Doing whatever makes you happy and travelling to exotic places surely tops the list. Also avoid people that drain your batteries because they'll drag you down. Tom

True. Good idea, Tom. There's always a few people around that we ought to ignore and avoid.
