Reconnecting with people and making new friends makes me happy.  I enjoy sitting down with someone and finding out about their life’s journey.  Where they’ve been, what they’ve done, what they’ve experienced.  I’m a happy person and I enjoy being around happy people.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not in a blissful state of mind […]
