Gan Xingfu (chasing happiness) 赶兴福
This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.
Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.
For more explanation about this project check out this post: Whatsoever is lovely…day 1.

I am not a particular expert so I don’t know whether this is technically echinacea. These cheerful souls were enjoying the morning sunshine in my neighbor ‘s parking strip.
Also known as Echinacea. Walking the dogs the other day these flowers were illuminated by the sun. The colors reminded me of a sunset.
