Happiness is...

 1.  the surprising, unexpected, acts of kindness from strangers.

  You are a very beautiful person, Miss ALiCe_M : I love my picture,
it's going into my happy-memories-box

2.  Hearing or reading things which solidify the way you think

    Hey this is so cool! I thought of you and your recent post about technology as soon as I saw the cave in the "Images chef"tool. Thanks for the lovely title and post, very sweet of you. Glad the pic is going into your happy memory box (and time capsule!).

    Nice points and thanks for the kind mention. It must be my philosophy background, I have a latent talent for aphorism!

    I will add my own. Happiness is Happeness....or as Wilma Cather so wrote, "being immersed and absorbed in a complete whole" - meaning, just being deeply engaged and involved in what you do. I think many of us are.... that keeps me happy.

    Hi Karenne!

    I love your post because it reminds me why I admire certain educators - like you: for the reason that they work hard and are an asset to education, they know how to appreciate other people's positive comments about them and love learning.

    I truly hope to meet you face to face one day - I think we will be talking for hours!

    Kindest regards,
