Happy, Happy Things

The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase: if you pursue happiness you’ll never find it.” ~C.P. Snow



Happiness is all around; it’s like soap bubbles. I can’t tell you for sure if Coca Cola prepares its magic formula inside The Happiness Factory …


because I don’t think they really know the secret… it’s more about feeling than about knowing it.

What I am sure of is that there are many happy happy things around us. See for yourself… 🙂

Pavillon du Bonheur Provisoire or The Pavilion of Temporary Happiness – I would name it the happy cube 🙂 A 600 meters Lego-like building entirely made out of empty Jupiler cases of beer, the place where, for a while happiness found its place. Modern times… Democratisation? Emancipation? Distinction? Just temporary…

Found on:  Brussels Pictures

Happiness in Perpetuity – The road is long and harsh, but in the end, at top of the world, next to the quiet sea, happiness resides. Forever.  A wonderful, whimsical painting by Paul Bond.

For prints go to: Fineart America

The Happiest Book – “In one way or another we are all looking for happiness. Some people even say that man’s sole purpose for existence is to hunt down and capture this intangible and elusive treasure. In 2006 researchers at The University of Leicester concluded that Denmark is the happiest country in the world – this was good enough for me. In March 2008 I made the decision to visit happiness, and embarked upon a pilgrimage to find it. My experiences are presented in this book. Only one copy exists.” Extract from Alex Ostrowski’s Website.

Another book totally cute? Happiness is a Warm Puppy (Peanuts) The wildly-colored pages are a precursor to sixties “groovyness,” but the text is years before its time. I found it reading Duarte Blog.

The Happiness Project Charles Spearin Music – not an ordinary album! Connected by the simple theme of happiness this magic album blurs the line between speaking and singing, life and art. Best gift in the world for sale here: The Happiness Project

Box of Happiness – simply art and lots of reasons to be happy from Alice Austin

HAPPINESS IS EVERYWHERE 🙂

If you haven’t smiled yet, I am sure I can make you smile anyway!

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” – Groucho Marx
