I’m usually a quite happy person. Granted, I complain because, well, I’m French, but I enjoy life. I find happiness in a lot of things: a steamed hot cup of vanilla bean latte, a nice evening out with friends, reading books, taking a hot bath, laughing over a silly joke, getting a work done, doing yoga, watching a good movie, relaxing, sleeping, chatting, hugging, traveling… the list goes on. I’m easy going. Not easy. Easy going.
One of the thing that usually bring me happiness is music. As far as I can remember, I have always liked it. I was lucky to have been raised in a family where Pink Floyd and Led Zep lines were quoted over diner and where music played all day long on the stereo. We went from records to tapes, from CDs to MP3s. I have just bought my first Ipod, a nano 4th generation, to go traveling. Every night, I go through my music library and tag, choose and lovingly add music in the player, music I know I will listen to late at night when I will be sitting in the bus or laying on a hostel bed.
I love live music and I was lucky to attend quite a few concerts these last few years. The Rolling Stones, The Police, Manu Chao, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead… The R.E.M concert in June was magic. We were in Toronto, at the Ontario place, outdoor. It was hot and steamy and the band played beautifully. This is probably one of my best concert memory, and a moment of happiness… among others.
How about you guys? What makes you happy?
