Happiness is…

Posted on

happiness is looking into the innocent, cheerful, smiling eyes.

Sitting under a tree at, its trunk keeping my back straight. Weather is very pleasant, cloudy , cool breeze, giving a hint of rain. I’m all alone , enjoying the surrounding, full of trees.

There comes a dog . Looks at my face. Perhaps for any sign of like or dislike. Founds agreeable. Come close hesitantly. Sniffs my feet,then hurriedly licks my feet and runs away. Comes back again. This time more confident. Wags its tail, again licks my feet and goes away.

Suddenly comes a squirrel, stripped, cute, just 4 inches away from me. Looks at my eyes. I’m sitting very still. Not to frighten it away. We are both looking at each other. It takes me as a statue, perhaps. I can’t keep long without blinking. I blink. The spell is broken. It runs away.

This is the first time a squirrel has come so close. I feel sorry. I could not take its photograph but I’m happy,very happy.

It takes so little to be happy.





About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. well, had you tried taking the photograph he certainly would have vanished 🙂 it is good for them that they don’t trust human beings much. we may not abuse them but there are too many who will.

  6. @Indira: Your story about the dog and the squirrel is awesome. The dog I feel came back twice, first to make sure he was safe, so he sniffed your feet and ran away, when you didn’t chase him, he thought it was safe to play with you, which is why he wagged his tail and licked your feet.
    The squirrel wasn’t sure how to take you, it didn’t feel safe to hang out, so it ran away.
    Would you say my observation is correct? 🙂
