    It Doesn't Take Alot To Make Me Smile

    All i want from this life is to be content, peaceful and surrounded by the ones i love. I don't care about the latest ipod or other 'must have' gadgets, those things don't bring you happiness. I live a simple life. I don't have alot of money, as long as i can get by then that...

    My Way Of Being

    I inhale the air, held my breath and dive deep. And even if I am not able to drown in the sea of big dreams, at least I learn to swim and discover the little special fishes and come alive to the edge with a big smile of contentment. I always find the good in everything. This is...

    and my dog by my side. It's so weird but I feel so much comfort from these two creatures... Its like their calmly saying, "We're here Joe. We got your back." Sheesh, I love my animals... They aren't even my pets, they're my family.... :)

    Vanity

    I'm no materialist at all.  I can almost do with what others throw away.  I even think that recycling is some kind of moral duty in a world that is wasting at an enormous speed.  Years ago I bought my cupboards and other furniture in thrift shops.  Solid...

    I Don't Need Much

    A roof over my head, food to eat, and independence. That's all I need.
