Hello Hello

May 4, 2019

Hello Hello
It’s nice to me you
I’m such a happy little girl
That’s my mommy
That’s my grandpa
It’s a happy sunshine world

I hope somebody loves you
Are you lucky
Just like me?
Everybody
Should be happy
I love everyone I see

The Pursuit

July 6, 2014

You can’t fill up on happy
By drinking twenty beers
Or eating cotton candy
Till it comes out your ears

Happy don’t yield dividends
When you pursue it as an end
Happy is the residue
Of all the worthwhile things we do

The need to know that nibbles
And asks us who we are
Won’t be sated by garages
With fifty-seven cars

Happy don’t yield dividends
When you pursue it as an end
Happy is the residue
Of all the worthwhile things we do

Find yourself a project
And plug, plug, plug away
Make a little progress
And show up every day

Happy don’t yield dividends
When you pursue it as an end
Happy is the residue
Of all the worthwhile things we do

Spread the Happy

March 25, 2014

It ain’t no sin to be glad you’re alive

—Bruce Springsteen

I feel happy
For your happy
I’m glad that
You are glad
Don’t make my
Life no better
For others
To be sad

Happy ain’t
No zero sum
So pass it on
To everyone

Life’s too short
To hold your happy
Don’t be scared that
You’ll be sappy
Spread it round
Don’t be a miser
You’ll feel better
You’ll be wiser

Happy ain’t
No zero sum
So pass it on
To everyone
