Happiness Recipe

To make up a batch of happiness, you will need:

Dreams – To fly like a kite.

Dragons – To show reality.

Doin’ Joy – Not to chase joy.

Accept the ingredients. Mix well.

Add tons of humor & a dash of hope.

Do lots, and sometimes do nothing.

Hold onto a dream.

Attend to your dragon,


While it is hot, or cold,

Do joy to the 10th degree!
