On Tuesday night, we watched Silver Linings Playbook.

In it, a just released mental patient is reading through novels discussed in the HS English class his estranged wife teaches.

When Pat finishes Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms, he throws it out the window in disgust and wakes his parents to express outrage that so many “must reads” have twisted unhappy endings instead of “silver linings.”  I share his wrath.

Here’s to finding silver linings in the midst of cloudy days, to being better (not bitter), and to living happily-ever-after on a moment by moment basis.

Aah . . . that’s better!
