{simple pleasures} l'art du bonheur: the art of happiness

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.
— Henry Ward Beecher

jardin intérieur: sometimes i wonder if the locals think me mad for snapping pics of all things common: lacquered park benches + shiny street signs, languid cats + portly dogs, my beloved house plants + my friends' herb gardens, each click of the shutter grows my inner garden + my happiness.
