long gone

... I found this little photo album (mostly 6x9cm contact prints) lying around the house. It belonged to my grandmother, pictures show people having fun, hanging out with their friends, and now these people are all gone. As you look through it, you can't help thinking how normal it all looks, everyone has had moments like that, laughing, going to the beach, but we usually take these moments for granted. Instead of enjoying THE NOW, we worry about shit in the future, always thinking that true happiness is around the corner, and will be reached when our (ever changing) goals are achieved. That makes no sense. Happiness is a choice.
