Flicker of Inspiration Linkup #28: Your Happy Place

It's linkup day! As I said the other day, prompts are moved to Wednesday night, but the linkup isn't changing: Sunday to Wednesday. So if you haven't started writing yet, better get to it!

Your prompt this week was Your Happy Place - take us to that special place in your mind that you can go to when the rest of the world is just a little too much.
I don't remember who it was (maybe the Dalai Lama?), but this very wise and calm person was asked how he was always so wise and calm, and he said to the guy asking the question, "It's because I never leave my meditation chamber." It might be helpful to point out that the two of them were not, at the time of that conversation, in the wise man's meditation chamber. He remains there in his mind; for him, the meditation chamber is his Happy Place, and he had discovered the way to keep part of himself there always. We should all be so lucky.

So, almost as good as keeping yourself in your Happy Place, you can at least keep a piece of your Happy Place here where you'll always be able to find it.

1) Link Up Here! As always, the linkup closes at Midnight on Wednesday night.

2) Read all the posts you can, comment on at least three. This highly concentrated collection of Happy Place might be a little intense, so keep some unsweetened coffee or a sticky soda stain nearby in case of an overload.

3) Share us on Facebook and Twitter! Spread awareness of the Happy Place linkup; happiness is always greater when shared by many people, after all.

4) Check back here once in a while to see new posts come up. After the linkup closes Wednesday, the new prompt will be up, so come back and see that too.
