Happiness is an Elusive Thing
As I count my blessings (my career, my supermodel wife, my intelligence and education) and look at the poor people left to die by the government in Louisiana I realize just how transitory "Happiness" really it, and just how rare.
I never had my family uprooted to a ghetto.
I never had my mother killed by Germans in a camp.
I never had my wife and unborn son butchered.
I never had my school friend and his girlfriend slaughtered.
I never had to flee in the night from a judge out to use me to further his career.
This is Roman Polanski three days ago at the Venice Film Festival with his wife. He has a new family now. He has a new movie this month. He looks happy.
I hope he is.
