Favorite Quote:
Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers.-Janis Joplin

In a world where
everything can be bought,
true happiness
is hard to come by.
Artificial happiness,
that's easy.
Take a pill.
Buy a product
you don't need.
You have to work for real happiness.
Real happy doesn't come
in a pill,
or a product
or a chocolate bar.
Real happiness for me
comes in
Strumming, plucking, pounding.
My hands feel the happy
running through me.
They know it's only temporary, but it's real.
Oh, so real.
