      David Paul, looks like you are starting a very cool thread here. The feeling that I am contributing something positive to society through my work makes me happy.

      Turil I think you probably already know my list of things that make me happy! When I get enough whole food, clean water, fresh air, warmth, light, and the freedom to express my excess solids, liquids, gases, and energy. And when my husband gets these things. And when my community at large gets these things. And when all... Read more »

      RAH Reading makes me happy. I would love to have someone to discuss non-fiction books with, but I am good with just spending time reading by myself. I don't even need coffee and donuts, which I also love to eat while I read. Books have so much to share and teach us. The nice thing about the printed word is that you can... Read more »

It has been an emotional event that has taken time to recover from (and is still ongoing), but I remember one of the... Read more »

      JaneDoe It will be interesting to learn more about definitions of happiness cross-culturally. I am interested in learning more about the definitions of happiness in environments that I have never experienced. Thank you for putting this project together. Best of luck!

      MuskyHunter There are some exciting documentaries that I have seen lately. These were available at our local Cedar Rapids library. One of these that I enjoyed was "Who Killed the Electric Car?", which opened my eyes to bigger picture issues. I know you have a topic here that can open my and many other eyes to experience a...
