Just a great quote on happiness from Bertrand Russell

“I’ve made an odd discovery. Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener, I’m convinced of the opposite.” — Bertrand Russell

Heard from this guy a few weeks back. He has totally changed his views now that he is on the other side.

Gee just noticed you are from Santa Cruz. Just lost a very dear friend there, killed by a hit and run driver last weekend. Lovely lady, certainly ready to pass over, so from her perspective a blessing perhaps.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend from Santa Cruz, Geoff. :(
