This part ...

"This part of my life... this part right here? This is called "happyness."
Christopher Gardner (Will Smith) The Pursuit of Happyness

Today 12th June 2007,

I am learning to dance
I am learning to play the guitar
I have a cat
I'm cooking again

"This part of my life... this part right here? This is called "happyness."
Fuzzy the Ducky (Me) My Life

Incidentally, here's some great quotes from this great movie:

"It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?"

"Hey dad, you wanna hear something funny? There was a man who was drowning, and a boat came, and the man on the boat said "Do you need help?" and the man said "God will save me". Then another boat came and he tried to help him, but he said "God will save me", then he drowned and went to Heaven. Then the man told God, "God, why didn't you save me?" and God said "I sent you two boats, you dummy!"

"This part of my life... this part right here? This part is called "being stupid."

Dumb that i am, Fuzz, i haven't watched that movie yet.. 'The Pursuit of Happyness', that is..
it's like we discussed the other day na.. the joy is in the pursuit itself, perhaps..
i think, we can always feel sorrow more completely than happiness, because we can't feel completely happy without being scared of the moment when it will be taken away.. so, actually, it's the anticipation of being happy that is much more pleasurable!! The Anticipation, and the Pursuit!! :)
btw... good post! :)
