I explained to my dear mama, once spoken these precious words of hers would be lost to all but my ears. If, though, committed to a very thin volume, I could peruse her tale at my leisure and no word would be lost when my fickle mind strayed to some other purpose. And better, for the excess books which would be produced from the press could be given for sale, taken around the island so others, far and wide, might delight in her careful narration.

My life, like yours, is a constant process of improvisation between my interests and personality on the one hand and circumstances and opportunities on the other. The one affects the other.

Projecting Happiness

A few years back, writer Gretchen Rubin decided to embark on a campaign to make herself happier, even though she acknowledges (and assured her husband) that she was already relatively happy. She chronicled her journey in The Happiness Project. The subtitle here speaks volumes (or at least one volume): Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun. She decided to focus on boosting her happiness in different parts of her life, such as marriage, work, play and money. She chose to boost one part per month, for a year.

Contemporary research shows that happy people are more altruistic, more productive, more helpful, more likable, more creative, more resilient, more interested in others, friendlier,and healthier, she says. Happy people make better friends, colleagues, and citizens. I wanted to be one of those people. On her Happiness Project website, she lists Four Splendid Truths. The fourth, and most salient of these in my opinion, is Youre not happy unless you think youre happy. Corollary: Youre happy if you think youre happy.

The poet Philip Larkin said the best thing to do is "try to be utterly schizoid about it all - using each personality as a refuge from the other."

Dr. Seuss wrote The Cat in the Hat with only 236 different words, so his editor bet him he couldnt write a book with only 50 different words. Dr. Seuss came back and won the bet with Green Eggs and Ham, one of the bestselling childrens books of all time.
