I am very happy with the theme of the weekly photo challenge. It is a subject that can be interpreted in so many ways. I also like the new gallery layout. I did not like the old gallery layout and did not use it. This new one is very impressive.
So the theme is happy…
Happy is a frame of mind.
I am happy with the place I live, Burleigh is on the Goldcoast and has a beautiful climate. My photos show the beach and the walkway around the Burleigh Heads National Park. The lookout is from the walkway over to Surfers Paradise.
Happiness is also having good friends you can share experiences with and family to celebrate all those special times together. It is important to have a wider circle of friends that, for me, come from belonging to a garden club.
I also find great happiness in the garden, watching plants grow and mature. Creating a place of beauty.
Then of course travel, the joy of discovering new places and meeting new friends, gives me deep satisfaction.
I read of a survey carried out on many people. At different times of the day and night they would receive a phone call and be asked what they were doing and rate their happiness at that time on a scale of 1 to 10. The experts then assessed the findings and found that what consistently gave people most happiness was sharing a meal with family or friends.
When I look at these photos the ones in my memory that gave me the most joy and happiness are the ones I am sharing with other people.
