So Much for My Happy Ending

Okay. Is anyone else sick of happy endings? I know I am. Things don’t always go the way we expect them to. In fact, life pretty much never goes the way we want it to or hope it to. So why do we all want to see movies, read books, hear stories, where everything turns out perfectly. There are all these glorious bumps along the way but they ultimately lead to the best life imaginable. Is that really life though? I don’t think it is. Yes, I know people who are happy with the way their lives turned out but I know a lot of people, good people whose lives did not turn out so well. That’s life, too. Just as much as the happy ending. That’s one thing I loved about working for the magazine. People would send in poems about EVERYTHING. There was art that was heartbreakingly sad. I know Natali will agree with me that sad endings are sometimes best. Look at that Brad Pitt movie Legend of the Falls. That was most definitely one of the saddest movies I have ever seen and I loved it! Okay. That was just my little rant of the day.

On the upside, my voice is starting to come back… kind of.
