Happiness: Take #3

“Happiness, to me, is being comfortable around somebody. I mean a lot of things make me happy.”

“Like what?”

“Fishing, reading, meeting new people.” 

A.J., South Carolina

I approached this man as he was contently reading in a quiet corner of the local Barnes & Noble. I sat down across from him and explained my project. He listened intently to my proposal and then let out a subtle laugh. I presume it was because this type of encounter is not entirely common, especially in between the fiction and literary classics sections of the book store. He agreed to participate, though, and it made for a wonderful conversation. Come to think of it, I may have even made a new friend.
