Happiness Is?

Happiness is finding out that a long-lost friend is not the same name chiseled so carefully on that long dark wall in Washington, DC. He is not the same; he is sore from age, past wounds, broken in spirit from a nation that had forgotten his pain, suffering and loyalty. His strong arms are still strong from wheeling the wheel chair into hard places. His face does not smile because of the daily toil he faces. This battle hardened man cries to hear from a friend from so long ago. He smiles today.

Dreams

Dream a little, dream a lot.
Makes you forget, what you got
Big dreams make you reach higher
Trying to find another high flyer
Take your time and try to find
Someone who can bend your mind

–Richard Milleville

Good Vibrations

“Happiness is waking up to sunshine, birds are singing, cactus flowers are blooming, the smell of hot coffee, and good vibrations; an incurable disease has been cured, we all will have a better quality of life, a friend or relative has a new birth or accomplishment, and there is peace among the nations.”

–Richard Milleville, Dukes Quotes
