As Denis Leary once said, “Happiness comes in small doses folks.”
He was referring to a cookie or something else incredibly insignificant in your life that brings great pleasure.

It’s the rare hour and a half I get to escape from the real world, and immerse myself in someone else’s fantasy. It keeps me focused in the director’s world that they’ve created, and forces me to shut down technology without having any urges to hit the pause button to check an e-mail. I AM FOCUSED; that is until someone else gives into their urges and pops on their cell phone…
