a formula for happiness
Love to play with papers again. My perfect, worthwhile evening occupation
instead of watching TV (although it´s running in the background....) and most important
it makes me happy! My little, personal formula for happiness these days goes like this:
papers + scissors + glue = happiness
"Sandy [Alexander Calder] was never, in all his long life, unhappy.
He himself said that he had "a big advantage" as he was inclined to be happy by nature.
Once a magazine reporter asked him if he ever experienced sadness, and he answered, "No, I don´t have the time."
When I see him roaring here, I believe him.
from the book "Alexander Calder and his magical mobiles"]
A book I would love to carry with me everywhere.
Seems it has some magic in itself, by giving off the sweet smell of inspiration,
feeling of light-hearted- and carefreeness and allowance to play.
What´s your formula for happiness these days?
