WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

A cheerful good morning. A soft good night. Smile. When you smile, people like you. Listen. When you listen, people love you. Don't talk too much. Sing, but only if you can. Otherwise, Listen. Enjoy. Music, food, the breeze, sunrise, sunset, two hands lovingly held together. Your morning cup of coffee. Or cup of tea. Green tea. Perfumed Green - Jasmine pearl. With honey. An old song. A new song. Ray Charles. Alicia Keys. The Great Maestro Pavarotti. Early Celine Dion. Celine without her boring Andre. Bouley bakery in Tribeca. Issy the Cappuccino Lady at Bottega del Vino. Marlene the Cappuccino Lady in Saint Ambroeus. Cooper Beach in Southampton. Gosman's Dock at Montauk. Zebresky farm in Water Mill. Bayside pool at Flamingo in South Beach Miami. The innocent girl with a naughty giggle. Sushi Samba. Fresh tangerine juice. Morning Glory Muffin. Pumpkin Muffin at the Golden Pear. A beautiful woman smiling. End of a boring speech. My Mother and Father. Beirut before the war. Beirut despite the war. The taste of fresh grapes in Santiago, Chile. New Year ocean dip in Rio. The view from Eden Roc in Cape d'Antibes. The top of the hill of the Lady of Garoupe. The bay approaching St. Tropez. Avoiding August visitors in Cannes. Marbella, any time of the year. Happy people. Sad people cheering up. Quarreling lovers making up. Music. The Sound of Silence. Cousin Shakira. The Eagles in "Take it to the Limit." Piaff in "Je ne regrette rien." Becaud in Nathalie. Padem Padem Padem. When the fat lady sings. When Elvis leaves the building.

Whatever makes you happy.
Just do it.
