Description "Happiness has to exist somewhere. Happiness is a place, a spot, a platform: a locus.
Happiness is a conceptual place. Sometimes it is also a tangible place which transforms, disappears and blends into the concept.
One wants to capture and confine Happiness, control it and hold on to it. One wants to border Happiness.
Happiness can be a language one speaks. Language has been compared to a city: to the maze of narrow alleys, squares and buildings from different eras that new suburbs surround with straight and regular streets.
A language, also a foreign language one speaks is a locus of Happiness. It is related to one's personal history the same way as objects are."
