ordinary life? What if it turns out your life is not so "ordinary"
after all? MY CHARLIE BROWN LIFE is a thought-provoking jaunt
one life that the author sees as ordinary, yet is anything but.
|From My Charlie Brown Life...
As I grew older, and life began to come at me from all sides, slamming
me back every time I began to feel as if I had a foothold on things, I
began to relate more and more to Charlie Brown himself. One of
Charlie’s Browns most famous quotes comes to mind as I write this: “I
think I’m afraid to be happy, because whenever I get too happy,
something bad happens.” That is exactly how I started to feel!
Especially when each bad thing seemed to come in pairs of two’s and
three’s, one right after the other, as if the Universe was daring me to
give happiness another chance. If Lucy had given me the advice she gave
Charlie Brown, that “You learn more if you lose,” then I would have
given her the same comeback that he did, namely, “Well then, I must be
the smartest person in the world.”
