what brings out a smile?
what puts that skip in your step?
what lifts your heart and spirit?
what helps you hope and dream again...
what makes you glad to be alive, to awake in the morning?

admittedly in light of the two major catastrophes in Myanmar and China, these questions appear frivolous. But precisely because life is fragile, we should ask what we find worth living about and for.

of course these questions can turn to self-indulgence and even self-pity. but there is an easy way to avoid that: ask those questions for someone else; and ask if you bring that smile, cheer and light to someone else.

if only we helped each other to live better, we would all die more ready.
