Bon mot for the week

"Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for."

Joseph Addison (1672-1719)

Those pretty much cover all the bases, don't they? (Heck, among the things covered by the third are hopes for the first two -- it's like a meta-essential.)

Hope that you found this life so in 2011 and that 2012 brings you more of all three!

I recently stumbled across an old comment by my buddy The British Cowboy, in which he noted, "Where there's hope, there's disappointment."

But, oh yes, I have plans for 2012...

I expect to find true love, found a successful business, relocate to a nicer country, finish the novel... and then discover that the Mayans were right.
