Whatshisname [The Dalai Lama] wrote a book in which he laid claim on The Pursuit of Happiness as Life's purpose...
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Ray. I deem it to be the product of a thankful heart!
If this is the French Market why isn't that young man wearing a beret?
Ginnie Hart: You wouldn't want me to begin, Larry! HA! This is GEORGIA! grin
Indeed - well said!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. My belief is it comes from the practice of being thankful!

a wonderful scene you captured here - and a fine word - I thought happiness would be a present, but we can do much to be happy - Jeder ist seines Glückes Schmied - "The fault ... is not in our stars,/But in ourselves, that we are underlings" (Shakespeare).
Ginnie Hart: I so much connect happiness to being thankful, Philine...which is definitely a way of life! Thank you. smile

I have come to this conclusion too Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: And I do believe it comes from a thankful heart, Chris!

That place was loaded with nice quotes. I think this is the best of all.
Great picture. love the crop.
Being thankful and happy, go hand in hand I think.
TGIF smile
Ginnie Hart: Being thankful is at the core of happiness in my estimation...but you already know that. Bedankt, MLMA!

Ieder is de smid van zijn eigen geluk.
Ginnie Hart: "Each is the blacksmith of his own happiness." You're on a roll, Philine. grin

You must have been delighted to find this quote above a smiling girl, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Lisl! The sweet togetherness of the couple did help! grin Thanks.
It's all in the mind.
Ginnie Hart: ...and a thankful heart! Thanks, Bill.
So true Ginnie! Wonderful capture.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. Merci.
Indeed, it's so meaningful.
People can show you the way to happiness,
but you gotta do it your way, eh?
Alright, I have decided to pick "My Way" for my funeral song. ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Only you, LC. Only you. But that's not a bad idea! smile Thanks.
Fantastic view. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Zielona.

That is a powerful and very true statement Ginnie, I like it.

Y-E-S-S-S!!! I'm not sure which I love more - the inspiring poster..or the sweet couple caught in an intimate moment of sheer happiness! Terrific image!
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Marcie. It was a serendipitous juxtaposition! smile Thanks.
..this I agree; it should be more popular, though...
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes the simplest truths are the hardest to achieve! Thanks, Juan Carlos.
What a zen thing to say.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Michael. smile
A lovely shot Ginnie, with the words and smile! Have a great weekend smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Martin.
What is also true is that happiness is different for every person; what makes each person happy, I mean.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I know what you mean, Mary. And as they say, we're all responsible for our own! Thank you.

a way of life... i have no response to that lol i just got up. i love the picture, brick walls are sooo great. and btw, i made the quilt.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, a way of life. As you know, I really connect happiness with a thankful heart! smile Great quilt!
A wonderful observation Ginnie! I love the one visible eye of the girl.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Wim. That one eye does seem to say it all, doesn't it.

yep, and these kids seem to be living it.. smile nice shot!
Ginnie Hart: It seemed like a perfect juxtaposition, Rian! smile Thanks.
A fine motto on which to start the w/end Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Fred. Thanks.
Fine capture, but surely it's like pepper and salt happiness and sadness you need a pinch of both for the full flavour.
Ginnie Hart: I suppose you have a point there, Martin!
Fine candid shot, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

I like this, feels very hip, 'On the road'
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like that, John. grin Thanks.
The words on that sign are so true, the look on the girls face suggests she might be a tad happy at that moment.
Ginnie Hart: It seemed an appropriate juxtaposition, Brian. smile Thanks.

That is so true. Happy weekend to you too smile
Ginnie Hart: So perfect for the weekend, Cherry, isn't it. smile For always! Thanks.
Well daid and well seen Ginnie. Everything is an invitation here to share all and everything. I love this image a lot. Have a nice week-end.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Flo. This was a serendipitous juxtaposition for me! Merci.
Excellent Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.
A well captured scene, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Amen to that! It's worth giving it your best shot every day, weekend of not (harder mid-week though smile )
Ginnie Hart: Every day, for sure, Alan! Thanks. Hope you're back home by now?!

That is so true! It is not about the destination it's about the journey!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Helen! Thanks.
je suis d'accord avec ce message où ces jeunes profitent de la vie avec joie
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, l'Angevine, isn't it! smile Merci.
Well, the last few years I have attained that great way of life thanks to a special friend.
Ginnie Hart: It makes all the difference in the world, Michael, doesn't it! smile
Perfect image to illustrate the message Ginnie! Attitude is what gets us through smiling.
Ginnie Hart: Attitude is everything, Doug, isn't it. A thankful heart seems to be at its core. Thanks.

Nice shot and well said quote
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lahrah, for stopping by and commenting!
What a great photo. I'm not sure I agree with "happiness as a way of life", but I have no earthly idea why. So, I'll just grin right back at that couple and grin again at a place that puts real, fresh flowers on a table. That's very French!
Ginnie Hart: If you come up with a better alternative, Linda, let me know. HA! But yes, you'd love this delightful place just south of Atlanta...with a big touch of New Orleans flavor! smile
very true smile
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Joshi. smile

A lovely shot of a profound statement that I hope, isn't lost on the young couple.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, George, and I, too, hope you're right.
