Here is Happiness



When I worked in Hawaii, each week a volunteer would come to the Day Care Center attached to the main building for sing along. She always ended with this beautiful song played in the upper octaves of the piano. One of my Japanese co-workers told me the song was Here Is Happiness. I'd been unable to locate it in many tries over the years. The song was magical.

Today I posted in my status message at Facebook that I was still searching for this song. One of my friends knew exactly where to search and posted the above link. Another friend commented that she had sung this at camp in Hawaii in her younger years. Small world. I'm just so happy to find it again. It doesn't have as much of an oriental 'feel' to it on guitar but the same wonderful melody is there.
