Minds are like parachutes, 

They only function when they are open.

Welcome to Freetobehappy.com

That was what Rory and I decided our home webpage should be called back in 2002. Why? Because happiness is really what life is about. It’s la raison d’être of life, if you will. So, it stays. With a smile, Makani (and Rory) PS Here's what we looked like back then (in Monet's Garden in Giverny, France)
