An Ordinary Day

Posted Saturday 23rd June 2012 at 17:56 by ranalobo
(This is an entry from my blog at Whitehawk Birdwatching and Conservation, [] that I wanted to share with you).

The other day a friend of mine said “when things are easy, people lose interest.” He was talking about relationships, but in the days that followed our conversation, I couldn’t help but think about this statement. Is it true that we crave drama? Are we only truly happy when we are making ourselves miserable?
