Shiny Happy People
I was walking through a shopping mall today as it occurred to me. Everyone around me seemed happy: children were laughing and playing, couples were hugging one another, people walked about with a smile on their face. Happiness was in the air.
This brought back memories and thoughts. Sure, it's easy to be cheerful when the weather is great, but there is more to it than simply a bit of sunshine. For example, one of the things I remember the most from visiting England is just how grumpy everyone seemed to me upon first arriving from Australia. After a while I got used to it. Now, need I mention the mood in Israel?
If one seeks an advertisement for Australia, one need not look any further than the general mood of its people.
