A Tribute post for me

To remember, happiness is morning and evening, daytime and nighttime.

Inspired by the song “Happiness” from the Musical ‘You’re a good man, Charlie Brown’


I’m so happy. That little red-headed gril dropped her pencil.

It has teeth marks all over it. She nibbles her pencil.

She’s human! It hasn’t been such a bad day after all.


Happiness is finding a pencil

writing pen and notepad


Pizza with sausage

ridiculously small pizza in Cambodia


Telling the time

Shirley&I, with world time zone


Happiness is learning to whistle


learning how to play guitar at Franz Josef

Tying you shoe for the very first time.

Happiness is playing the drum in your own school band.

And happiness is walking hand in hand.

Happiness is five different crayons…

having fun with million different shirts in BKK


Catching a firefly… Setting him free.


Happiness is being alone every now and then.

Being alone, Witch the cat.


And happiness is coming home again.

Stepping outside with my backpack in BKK


Happiness is morning and evening,

Daytime and nighttime too.

Happiness is singing together when day is through.

And happiness is those who sing with you.

Happiness is morning and evening, Daytime and night time, too


For happiness is anyone and anything at all that’s loved by you.
