The world creates happiness

Remembering that ten percent of happiness comes from the world, I was thinking about the nature of that ten percent.  Two experiences come to mind.  One occurred last night and one many years ago.  Last night I experienced a live comedian who was expert at interacting with the crowd as well as having good material.  It was impossible not to laugh and have a good time.  Happy drugs were in abundance.  The long ago experience was on a canoe trip with my wife and another couple.  We were up early with the sun just coming up.  We were in the canoes.  The water was as flat as glass and there was a mist on the surface.  It was an extraordinary experience that just had to be enjoyed.
