Welcome to the Tuesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can hang out and talk about what’s going on in our worlds. Today’s question: What brings you happiness?

Here are some of the items on my happiness list:

The pooties we live with. We share a home with four cats who bring us great joy. Happiness is simply watching one of them sleep, or chasing the red dot. Happiness is sitting down with some gelato and then having that fluffy black pootie paw waving at me, reminding me that the Cat Manual says I have to share. Happiness is having a loudly purring cat sitting on my chest, flipping her furry tail across my face while I’m trying to sleep.

Glacier National Park: I first ventured into Glacier National Park about 65 years ago. The beauty and serenity of the Park never fails to impress me. It doesn’t make any difference how many times I’ve been in the Park, how many times I’ve hiked the trail, how many times I’ve attempted to photograph the waterfalls or to capture the nuances of light in the old-growth forests, it is always new, always beautiful, always serene, and it never fails to bring me peace, happiness, and harmony.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
