One Purchase Away

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is a brand new car and top-down cabriolet.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is a pair of shoes and a flat top beret.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is an ocean cruise and the "anchors aweigh."
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is a big night out and seats at the ballet.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is a drinking binge and bottles of Vouvray.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is another place and Swiss Mountain chalet.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is the best camera and movie verite.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is dancing lessons and rhythmical sashay.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is exquisite meals and organic soufflT.
That truly happy feeling is one purchase away.
Perhaps it is commodities and all we own today.
