You made me think about what bring me happiness. But honest and long term happiness, not those little moments that make us enjoy day a day.
If I have to make a balance and decide what makes my soul happy, what makes worth it this pass through life, it is definitely connections. These connections we build with other people, either eternal or only for a while; for me it's not only an expresion, it's the "happiness" truth: when shared, life is better.
(like that connection you and I had when you came to Tromsø. If I think about it, that is definitely what makes me happy, just a couple of persons, from different parts of the world, connecting in a few hours and spending some time together, sharing moments, laughs and thoughts)
