Brevity

Bandera de Mexico Man
Sometimes a paucity of words can be a good thing. Sometimes when someone is brief, it's nothing to get worked up about. A brevity of words doesn't have to mean someone is getting rude. It can just be that the message needs to be concise. Why bury something in a whole lot of subterfuge?

Apparently, brevity was the theme of this week's letter from TMFKATB. He wasted no time in getting to the point of his letter:

I am super happy!

There wasn't a lot more to his letter than that. A couple of informational updates on some of the people he's working with and the random fact that he's going to be building a basement this week constituted the whole of this week's download.

I'm not complaining at all. As his dad, knowing he's happy is all I need. He's happy teaching people. He's happy building basements. He's happy in the heat of an Indian summer.

In the end, isn't that what we want for one another? That we're happy.

Very little is needed to make a happy life;
it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
Marcus Aurelius

As a final note on happiness, take a look at the video TMFAKTB sent from a Fiesta de las Americas he attended. The kid in the hat will make you smile.
