Sadness is the lack of Joy

I’m sorry for this short absence. I’ve been in a midterm week at school and busy with many things less nice than doing interventions. But even though it’s almost 2am I couldn’t not share with you this web site that I just came across.

It’s a Brazilian project called O que é tristeza pra você (What is sadness for you?) that consists of many short documentaries where artists are invited to answer this question. The first answer was the title of this post, and when I watched the video response of Rita Pires I was amused to see that we share the same opinion: Happiness is in the small things, like a flower blooming and a genuine “good morning”.

There are subtitles is English, so I guess it’s worthy to take a look:
