… GETTING unexpected news from friends you thought had all forgotten about you. But they did not ! An SMS on your cellphone, a letter with lots of pictures, a telephone call, all of it on your birthday.
… LISTENING to a song from years ago by a lady who was famous as an actress, a singer, an activist and a politician (Minister for Culture in her country). A beautiful unforgettable human being, MELINA MERCOURI, from Greece.

… WALKING to the woods just after the rain has fallen, droplets of water still trembling on the branches and leaves.
I am listening to the rain whose drops are falling one by one.
I am listening to the rain whose noise is calming my heart.
… HEARING the birds sing in the morning as you wake up
… EXPLORING the countryside with a determined buddy as a guide
… BEING MOVED by the tenderness and protection shown to a child
… LOOKING FORWARD to the Season of strawberries
… IMAGINING things in the sky, like a large lost feather… or an angel’s wing ?
… PLAYING SCRABBLE just for the pleasure of finding words and not for counting points
… And last but not least ENJOYING POSTING AGAIN, reading you, finding inspiration, energy and time to write to you !
I feel sure there are many other reasons to define what HAPPINESS is. Those are just the thoughts that came to mind as I started writing about it.
