What is your idea of perfect happiness?
There is no such thing as perfect happiness. There are moments when you dive into something that captures you totally, be it a song, a movie or a book, or working on something you enjoy, and you forget about everything else. Being able to do such things is what I perceive as happiness. If I would have to synthesize it in fewer words, that would be “your kid’s smile” for sure.
