July 13th Fool’s Paradise Day

So what is your paradise? I think most people think paradise is a beautiful lush island somewhere they do not have to work and everything is served to them at their whim. But I also have friends who’s paradise is a snow covered field in the middle of winter. And a few who think being downtown New York City is paradise. The point is, there probably is no paradise on earth. If you are on that island if someone is going to serve you that means you aren’t alone and where there are people, there will be problems. So, paradise is only what we create in our minds. It’s a nice place to visit, dream of and reach for but it will probably never be real. That’s why it’s a fool’s paradise.

How to celebrate – Dream up what paradise means to you. Go there when things get rough. Let every fool have their own paradise.
