“Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing.” – William Butler Yeats
I visited my childhood friend Carrie this week. We grew up together in Kansas City. She lives in the San Francisco area now.
One of our tour stops was Muir Woods, a woodland nature preserve just north of SF. When it comes to the topic of “growth” there are so many ways to approach it from our day among the towering Redwoods and Sequoia.
Looking up at the treetops makes you feel small and hopeful. We are still growing up.
