Happiness is... What it is...

 

27/5/2016:

Arrived in the south of France after a beautiful drive with my friends. The sun grew warmer the more south me drive, the landscape changing and the villages more beautiful.

Gourmet French patisserie visit and picnic by the river. It feels more real  now. The air is fresh, the atmosphere clean, the sun biting the back of your neck, the mood peaceful, quiet and exciting all at the same time.

I'm visiting 2 vans today in the area to hopefully make into my new home on wheels. It's always been a dream to own a van since I was 18, so I'm super excited. A van for a house, for touring, for business for an easy simple life.

The search also continues for the perfect piece of land here in the south. Right now I'm in Saint- Sulpice, a beautiful small town just 30 minutes from Toulouse. Great wine, road trips, sitting by the river, lots of cheese, organic produce, weekend markets, and more.  

 

It begins and I feel great.

The bounty

I often find it difficult to stick to one thing at a time. It comes from my ability to see opportunity in everything.

Whilst  I've just recorded an EP, I cannot help but focus on another before it is even finished. I'm collecting one thing whilst making another. I'm planning a new menu whilst eating tonight's dinner. I'm dreaming of new ventures whilst living this one. I'm lost in thought whilst finding clarity in reality. There is one element that is definite and certain, that is, I'm eliminating possessions and constantly finding new ways to find peace in simplicity, space and non-commercialism. 

I am happy and I'm always grateful for everything. The people around I love dearly and I reflect on our lives together every day.  

There is a limitless bounty of life, awareness and tranquility in our breath, in nature and in the comfort of peaceful exchange. 

I'm soon to bring to you new music and the promise of more musical treats along the way. This new guitar really is feeding the soul, so you too will soon be fed.  

May you all have a spontaneous and happy day.  

Ben.
