The Pursuit of Happiness
February 20, 2013 by orvietoorbust
I snapped this photo of a smiling dumpster a few years back and thought to myself, “If a dumpster can be happy, why can’t we?”
For me happiness is like an AutoGrill on the Italian Autostrada: A pit stop on the road of life. You can pull in, park, take a coffee and hang out for a while but you aren’t permitted to set up camp. At some point you must get back into your vehicle and continue down the highway. Do you grumble as you get into your car, waiting and hoping to come across another AutoGrill soon?
When will we get it? Life is speeding past us like the scenery out our windshields. We have to run across the parking lot, jump back into our cars, roll down the windows, crank up the radio and sing at the top of our lungs to bad pop songs.
Life is short. Be the dumpster.
