Thought for this Day

"...on your birthday people usually say 'Happy Birthday!', when actually the day of your birth was the birth of your suffering. But nobody says 'Happy Birth-of-your-Sufferingday!"
- The Dalai Lama, as quoted in the book "The Art of Happiness"

Came across this quote today en route home from San Diego. Its appropriate, today. I'm back home, and although I spent the day in shuttle vans, airports and airplanes, I did not suffer too much.....
