    Family first for sure....happiness and joy in one package. Teeing off on the first hole is also a source of much happiness, although I don't do it every day.

    Waking up realizing I am not six feet under makes me happy. Without getting too religious, I'll just say that recognizing the gift of life from God makes me happy and joyful. Looking for opportunites to give to and serve others everyday gives me a great source of joy.

    Also, teeing off on holes two through 18 is pretty cool. :D

  11. Seeing my new son everyday when I get home from work.

    Jamming with the boys.

    Riding my bike to work on a day that's less than 30 degrees with no humidity or smog.

    Kayaking on de watah!

    +1. I usually hate the 1st hole. Too much pressure and people watching you know?

    My best friend

    I see her like everyday. In work, out of work, all the time. Just a smile or a laugh makes life worth living :)

    Chuck Sher publishes my book, WALKING BASSICS:The Fundamentals of Jazz Bass Playing.
    Just as an FYI, there's a collection of letters from R. Crumb to his brother (the one that didn't commit suicide) entitled YOUR VIGOR FOR LIFE APALLS ME...

    Work - I take pride in my job and do enjoy the feeling of a job well done.
    Food / drink - sometimes nothing brings more joy than a perfectly grilled steak or tasty ice cream cone for dessert.
    Private / intimate time with my significant other - 'nuff said.
    Fishing - I love fishing. I don't get out enough but whenever I do it brings me much joy.
    BASS - Playing bass brings me much joy and really takes me away to "another place". I enjoy that.
