How to Be Happy

This weekend's New York Times had an article on Frugal Portland, and the writer Matt Gross pinpointed that certain joie de vivre that is found in Portland. And I think it just might be the recipe for happiness that I was looking for.

"Oregon has the country’s second-highest unemployment rate — [yet] there was a general indifference to wealth. In its place was a dedication to the things that really matter:
hearty food and drink, cultural pursuits both high and low, days in the outdoors and evenings out with friends."

I'm thinking about embrodering a pillow or something with some version of this as a motto of how to live life. Plus, isn't that a great photo? Good job, NYT.
