It strikes me that as we progress through life, we cut ourselves off from our sources of happiness and connect more strongly to sources of sorrow.

We need to reconnect with the music that the kids are making these days, the comic books that say so much of life and the nights out when we laughed until dawn.

We need to disconnect from the bad news in the headlines, the routine gatherings around the latest obituaries and the sober nights spent alone in front of the television.

Let us reclaim our happiness before it becomes our own obituary that those we left behind are gathering around.

Sing, laugh and dance for the simple joy of being able to read this right now.
