Happiness Is Boring.

The un-glamorized truth about our cheery, merry, joyful and beatific lives.

Not that we actually plan to stuff someone’s face into a watermelon. But it’s still nice to know we could since we’ve got so many of them.

According to Psychology Today, getting off Facebook is a good start. Another is realizing that happiness isn’t a goal as much as a byproduct.

Maybe that’s why some people never find joy. Like everything in our universe, it’s more or less a mistake.

You can joke and sing and be jolly and gay. It’s still going to be fleeting.

“There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part. So just give me a happy middle. And a very happy start.”

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
