Its a calling and a lifestyle. It is not like new clothes you can just "put on". We are the happiest people I know.
I officiated a wedding this past week end in downtown Richmond VA., the Museum district and Bottom. Celebrants were of course bubbly and "happy". The others, those passed on sidewalks and walking 'round Chimarazzo park looked and behaved like lonely, solitary, zoo kept critters. Now I've never before spent time in a high density pop. setting, nor seen such pervasive sullenness.
Green Acres is the place to be (you know the tune)
