On the pursuit: An introduction

You may have noticed the snippet, “On the pursuit” in the header. According to dictionary.com, the definition of “pursuit” is as follows:

[per-soot] –noun

  1. the act of pursuing: in pursuit of the fox.
  2. an effort to secure or attain; quest: the pursuit of happiness.

Contrary to the Declaration of Independence, my personal philosophy is that “the pursuit of happiness” is misguided. Happiness can be the warmth of sunshine, the splattering of rain, or a cool breeze. Happiness is a state of mind to be embraced, not searched for. I pursue further knowledge and broader experiences. I’m on a quest for alternative points of view and new questions. I laugh as I learn.
