Happiness and Joy

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.

It's Raining Again

When the rain came down, I was standing in the green. My soul was touched by every tree that my eyes could see. I am in peace, in love, in harmony when the rain comes down.
- Happy Rhodes


I remember hanging out @ a place called Skate Ranch in Milan, IL when this song was popular back in 3rd grade. The lingering aroma of buttered popcorn waffled the atmosphere in that place. The year was 1974-'75, when my elementary school mates hung out @ Skate Ranch during the weekends. Great times!

We all need laughter in the rain!  What a gorgeous world it would be if we saw many happy men and women just frolicking under the winter showers, holding hands and kissing.  Why must there be so much fear to find someone with whom we can share affection and deep tenderness?  People think that such a thing cannot be enjoyed without promising to be with the other person for life.  Why?  Change partners.  Share your love.

This song always makes me cry cause it reminds m about how my mother left us to "look for a brand new start" because she really did take my heart away.

This song means so much to me. 1961 and my girlfriend and I were listening to the radio. She said she was breaking up with me and all of a sudden this song came on. Teen love, raindrops did fall from my eyes.

They say a song brings back a thousand memories. When this was a Top 40's hit, I was working summers for a local Coke bottler. My job was as helper on a delivery truck. We carried case after case of Cokes up stairs, into supermarkets, taverns, restaurants, &c., including some in the ghetto. When I got off work, I would listen to Dee Clark sing this song over and over again. I loved it. I could not get enough of it. I still have the 45 rpm single.

Pure Pleasure

“I was surrounded by friends, my work was immense, and pleasures were abundant. Life, now, was unfolding before me, constantly and visibly, like the flowers of summer that drop fanlike petals on eternal soil. Overall, I was happiest to be alone; for it was then I was most aware of what I possessed. Free to look out over the rooftops of the city. Happy to be alone in the company of friends, the company of lovers and strangers. Everything, I decided, in this life, was pure pleasure.”

- Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy
