Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Wonton noodle soup for breakfast...a school visit with enthusiastic, prepared kids...no traffic on the way back home...a sushi dinner with my husband and son...emails from friends...finding a new poem...falling asleep with the fragrance of gardenias blowing through the window screens. Yes, that would be Perfect Happiness!
