April 5

With Passover coming up in a week,I have been thinking about about freedom and liberation, the watch word of the holiday. That made me include in my thoughts,"happiness". I have read that you are responsible for your own " happiness". I don't completely believe that. I can be happy, but I have to consider the people close to me. If my happiness doesn't involve their well being, and their personal happiness , how can I do my happy thing. Happiness in a family has a trickle down affect. If I do what makes me happy but leaves out what a person close to me can do, can I do it. So no, I am not fully onboard with the notion that I am responsible for my happiness. I can only be happy when everyone around me has what makes them happy too. Some times , sacrificing or putting on the back burner what makes you happy, is the loving way to go. Love makes me happy.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
