Have you ever heard of Gavin Pretor-Pinney? This British designer and author wrote the bestselling book ‘The Cloudspotter’s Guide’ and started the website; www.cloudappreciationsociety.org
Mama-Buddha learned an important lesson from him.
This optimistic man tells us all about the beauty of clouds. And how we treat clouds as ‘something that gets in the way of our sun’. He talks about ‘blue sky thinking’.
There is nothing wrong with just lie in the grass and look at clouds. Maybe you remember you did so when you were a kid, and you saw all the special shaped clouds. Looking at clouds, see the shapes and try to make something out of it, it is almost like meditation. Focus on being relaxed, lie down in nature, breathing fresh air and be still.
Please take some time to listen to Gavin, and then allow yourself to lie down and appreciate our beautiful nature.
Mrs. Happy is on holiday in Thailand.
Well, if that is not making me happy, what would? Thailand is a wonderful country, with lots of beautiful, smiling ladies. And the food…I could write post after post about the delicious fresh foods they cook here (maybe I will next time).
Today I am sitting in a deckchair, under a palm tree, sipping a fresh fruit drink. I am sitting here already for hours and hours, just relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere. And look at the sea. Watch how the sun paints silver spots on the water, listen to the sound the waves make when they brake on the beach. Sheer happiness.

‘Mama-Buddha, why are you calling your readers sunflower?’
Good question my sunflower!
Well, I love sunflowers. The color, the brightness, how they grow quickly and how they move their sunflower-heads towards the sun. It makes me feel warm and happy inside.
And you, my dear reader, you can also have a very fast (mentally) growth.
And I know that you also love light, sunshine, bright colors and happiness.
So that is why I refer to you as sunflowers.
