It’s startling that Broder’s unabashed expression of sadness – and all the shitty emotions – has struck such a nerve in a world where people’s social media profiles are immaculately curated to show their happiest selves. But clearly the growing rates of depression worldwide mean that we are struggling to be happy. Are we doing something wrong? Broder’s popularity should compel us to cast a new look at sadness and its cousins. Perhaps we should consider realigning ourselves with the Romantics, who as a group found solace in freely expressing emotions in poetry.

 125          26SharesMy favorite art exhibit absolutely ever is Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds housed at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.

You frolic with dogs and kite-wielding dragons or pilot a cirrocumulus pirate ship through the great sky sea. Silver Clouds doesn’t hang… Read More »

              In the spring semester of the school year, I teach a class called ‘Happiness’.

Always. ‘How many of you are planning to have children?’ Almost everyone raises their hand again. Then I lay out the… Read More »
