With enormous gratitude and excitement I’ve decided to stop writing here at Being Happiness. For several years I’ve written here about happiness, mindfulness, and related topics, and it’s been wonderful – mostly because of the great comments and feedback I’ve had from readers.
It’s been quite an introspective, autobiographical journey, and for some time now I’ve had the strong feeling that I would like to focus more on direct creativity – be it art, music, photography, different writing or recording projects – a creative life but where the focus is more outward than introspective. Does that make sense? In musical terms, it’s time for a new album!
So I’m hugely grateful to everyone that has read this blog and to those that have commented. I still welcome and will reply to any comments here and on the last few posts (I think the comments switch off on posts older than a week or so), and I can always be contacted via the help/contact pages at notesinspanish.com which will continue as always.
And I’m hugely excited about moving into a more outward, and creative time. I’ve been sitting at home writing about happiness an awful lot over the past few years, and now it’s time to get out more again. My friend Mike Randolph and I have a very exciting Spain-related project about to start, and it wouldn’t surprise me if I begin a new website sooner or later dedicated to my new creative ideas. No doubt the odd bit of writing about life and happiness will creep in! I’m sure life and happiness will be inherent to the new projects in different ways.
If you would like to hear about any of these, just make sure you are signed up to receive new posts from here via the box in the right hand column that says ‘Subscribe to blog by email’. I’ll very briefly post here pointing to these new projects when they are ready, and you’ll get an email automatically with the details, links etc.
Finally, I always meant to include this lyric from Bob Marley, it popped up yesterday on random on my iPod and made me smile – Bob knew what I’ve been writing about all along:
“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds” (Redemption Song)
Many many thanks again, may we all continue to be immensely happy in this wonderful world.
Lots of love,
