On having a good life

This afternoon, I happened to chat with a strange girl, about 16 or 17 years of age. As I got on my bike to go, I said (as I often do), “Have a good life.”

“You too,” she replied.

“Oh, I already have,” I threw back as I started to pedal.

I realised, this is true, not despite all the bad and even terrible things in my past, but because of them.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
