The importance of it all

A person close to me passed by last monday after a long illness. Death is there waiting for us all, but comes and visits us from time to time.

Reactions to these events vary wildly between different personalities. Mine, for instance, makes me remember about the good moments with him. And makes me realize about the importance of Happiness.

I think that Happiness, as Death, comes and visits us from time to time. Little hidden visits. Simple moments around. Those I remember with him. One needs some training to be able to see these. And enjoy them.

His family and friends know that he knew this, and that he applied it: he detected these visits and enjoyed them. He was as happy as he possibly could.

We all will now miss him. And we will try to learn from him too.

As Mark Twain said,

Happiness is a Swedish sunset -- it is there for all, but most of us look the other way and lose it.
