"I was, in fact, homesick for wildness, and when I found it I knew how intimately - how resonantly - I belonged there. We are charged with this - all of us. For the human spirit has a primal allegiance to wildness, to really live, to snatch the fruit and suck it, to spill the juice." - Jay Griffiths, Wild: an Elemental Journey

How Not to be Sad


1. Get acupuncture.  (This place is awesome.)

2. Spontaneously decide to get Indian food with an old friend.

3. Make a new playlist on your iPod.

4. Wait till the sun has just set, then go for a bike ride in the cool, spring air, listening to your new playlist in one ear, and the sounds of the night in another.

5. Make sure to go down a few hills as fast as you can.

6. When you get back, be grateful for the simple delight of a cool, juicy orange.

7. Light your favorite incense.

8. Watch this.

9. Or this.

10. Know that life is good, right now, in this moment.  Because really, that's all there is.
