You Can't Buy Happiness. . . .

I didn't sleep well last night and woke up this morning stiff and sore. And then John started reading. I was in a different world. What an incredible writer Abraham Verghese is. How I wish I could write lines like he does. I saw this quote on Denver friend Kathy Brown's Facebook page the other day. How true.

"You can’t buy HAPPINESS,
But you can buy BOOKS
And that is kind of the same thing"
After a good breakfast and 800 mg of Ibuprophen, John and I hit the trails---another nine or so miles. Books are great, but the best things in life are free, including hikes with the love of my life. Below are pics that don't begin to capture the beauty of this national park. The canyons are simply spectacular.
