The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy. And happiness is born from gratitude. (Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar.)
I didn’t have anything special today, but it was just a grateful day thanks to the five things I would like to share.

This is what I fully realized within a short time last night, through an incident of having my cellphone stolen in the movie theater of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. You can see a little bit of dram on it in this entry.
One thing I was not expecting to do in Mongolia was to go to a movie theater that frequently. For the last three months in my stay, I have been there 8 times so far, which means every 2 week! This must be the most frequent pace in my movie life. So today, let me share my experience on Mongolian movie theater.
Recently I happened to watch a movie “Ma Vie en Rose (My Life in pink)”, a French movie made in 1997, nearly 20 years ago, and this movie got me thinking several things.
And later on, I watched one TED-Ed video about biology of several species including us human beings.
From those two sources, I realized how mysterious the system of X and Y is, about which I will talk about in this blog.
First of all, please spare for about 6 min to watch this video.
