Happiness is bad for you

Happiness is bad for the creativity. I think that's why I haven't been posting as much lately - I'm in too good a mood.
Take a look at the best music - isn't most of it angst-ridden, or speak about injustices or heartbreak. Happy musicians don't make good music!
Or how bout art? You think Picasso would have been so inventive if he hadn't hacked off his ear?
How many plays have been written about everything being wonderful? Not too many. Strife is what drives the human spirit.
Not that I'm complaining...but oh, my poor blog suffers for it.

Uhhhhh, that was Van Gogh that hacked his ear off... but I bet Picasso was a miserable sod too.

A common beginner's oversight is usually to position one's thumb on the lenses although getting a photograph. This causes a fuzzy spot to happen in the corner of a picture. You should make sure your camera lens is clean and that you usually are not obstructing it with your thumb prior to taking a picture. [url=http://www.xxxw12woo.info]micr3oe5e[/url]
