reminds me of the story about a little dog who always chases cars trying to snap at the wheels, and someone once asked 'what would the dog do if he ever caught the car? soooo would we even know happiness if we 'caught' it???
It's the story of my life these days. I always feel like I'm waiting for something great to happen and then I'll be happy. Which brings me back to my current self-help trend of trying to live in the moment instead of going through the motions with my hands while my brain thinks about what's next. It's an ongoing battle but I'm doing a darn fine job of winning out.
There are moments in my life where I experience complete happiness and serenity. Usually waking from a dead sleep. I know more happiness at times during the day or week, when everything seems to fall into place. It doesn't last long but it's there. Perhaps we should all turn buddist?
Maybe we should all turn into cats.
I just posted an illo that goes so well with this!
i dunno, what the fuck is happiness, can anyone tell me, as soon as i think i feel happy, something comes along and swipes me to the ground as if to say, 'take that- now you will know what happiness is', but it's just outta reach.
