Sun & Moon Calculator

This is so cool. Check it out. A map-centric sun & moon calculator...    helps you plan outdoor photography shoots in natural light, particularly landscape and urban scenes. See how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth.

The happiness we seek cannot be found through grasping, trying to hold on to things. It cannot be found through getting serious and uptight about wanting things to go in the direction we think will bring happiness. We are always taking hold of the wrong end of the stick. The point is that the happiness we seek is already here and it will be found through relaxation and letting go rather than through struggle.
