  • In Transylvania, happiness is measured by the chickens and apple harvest in the backyard.

    The kids filled plastic bags with apples and then we made fresh apple juice.

    The littlest one chased the hens through the yard.

    Everyone was happy. Except for me.

    I was restless as usual, wondering what I was supposed to find and whether I was standing in the right spot for the revelation.
