Looking at something special makes me emotional and often happy too. This happens most of the time when I am watching people. And I am thinking that we do not need so many big things to be happy. Yes, happiness. Is it not that we are looking for happiness all the time? Is not this perhaps the most important goal of life?
We have been told that the only way to be happy was to follow the path of God. Then, we could easily enjoy happiness without any recourse to God. Then again, we can find happiness through pleasure and human effort. Additionally, we can always be happy through our own work. And more that happiness is only a question of pleasure.
I was running at Fælledparken the other day when suddenly my eyes caught something beautiful and at the same time special. I remained standing for more than five minutes looking at them with a big smile on my face: those three intense colours green, black and white in a perfect tuning, these two friends laying down on the grass with such kindness and harmony. Yes, harmony: a state of peaceful existence and agreement. This picture owes its air of tranquillity largely to harmony like musical notes produce a pleasing effect. Yes indeed we need more than ever social and racial harmony and be in harmony with our planet and environment.
Then I started walking towards them with a little hesitation. As soon as they saw me I started to talk and I said “Hi guys sorry to bother you but I would love to ask you whether I can take a picture of you, you are so beautiful”. They looked at each other whispering something and then she said “yes, you can”. I left them alone, walking away, giving my back, turning my head a couple of times to look at them again and again while they were getting smaller and smaller..I was so happy!!
