what makes a person happy?


almsot every one would agree that it has something to do with the relationship one has with others..with human beings, animals and the trees and other environmental representatives.
It was good to observe latin and caribbean families waiting for their dear ones to come out of their day surgeries, whereas american families waiting had much fewer members. I saw a latin family with grandmother, grandchildren and other generations waiting for their relative to come out and one lone american man waiting for his dear one..
In richer countries, including Japan, it has become customary to have nuclear families and forget the joy of extended families.
sometimes extended families can include visitors from the islands. In the house of my sister in Miami, the presence of Miss A, whom I have dubbed Miss Amazon because of her huge size, proportionately enough... she is kind and gentle and a good person to have around..
We are lucky to be mixing with people from the islands ...here in Miami
