This morning my wife and I went strolling around our new neighborhood and stopped into Caffé Brioso in northeast Portland. The coffee was good, the barista extremely friendly, and while the atmosphere was a bit austere, the big red chairs we sat in were nice and comfy. But the highlight, for me, was finding this happy little flower pot — full of tiny orange roses — sitting on the counter behind the bar.

Here’s a close-up of the flower pot:

As I leaned over to snap the photo with my phone, the barista kindly moved it closer and asked why I needed the pic, so I told her about this blog. Turns out, she studied happiness and positive psychology at Portland State University, which led us to a quick conversation about cultural happiness, positive thinking, and the government of Bhutan!

All in all, a very pleasant way to spend a morning. 🙂

This snapshot of your day makes me smile. It sounds like you and Jennifer are joyfully settling into your new digs. (By the way, I have a great photo of a Bhutan monastery in my fb photo collection. I’ll post it on your wall. I think you will like it.
