It is all well and good to know that place affects happiness, that the happiest communities tend to be open minded , vibrant places where people feel free to express themselves and cultivate their identities, and that these communities tend to foster creativity.”*  I’ve lived in several such places.  One was Austin, Tx., the other Woodstock, N.Y.  and now Lake Worth Beach, Fl.   Today I spent time on Lake Ave. and L st. and took photos from my vantage point, a 365 degree circumference.  It felt a lot like the Village green in Woodstock without the green.  This is the center point.   Met Lisa from Finland on her bike exploring our city.  A realtor from Welli world (Wellington).DSCN4150 DSCN4149 DSCN4146 DSCN4144 DSCN4132  The two young women exploring their identity.  Friends and strangers were taking holiday selfies.  A group of women discussing the condo world they live in and wished they lived here in Lake Worth Beach.    I’m currently rereading.  Richard Florida’s “Who’s Your City“, perhaps there will be further comparisons in the coming week or so.  An hour later, 3 minutes east I’m at our Beach, a blustering 72 degrees this Christmas Day.

Right now I can truthfully say happiness resides here.   By all means if you have something to share I do not censor comments.
