Because I’m Happy

“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.” Guillaume Apollinaire

I don’t know about you, but I am always in pursuit of happiness.  I don’t really know what that means anymore.  I have given up pursuing happiness and I am just happy.  I am happy to be alive.  I am happy to be a woman of color. I am happy to be a writer.  I am just happy and no one can have my happiness.  No!  It’s mine and I’m keeping it.  Protect your happiness like it is the fountain of youth because it is!

The Writer.
