Americans Spend More in the Search for Happiness—And It’s Not Working – Lifestyle – GOOD.

this is a pretty interesting cultural realization, or at least it should be.  for all of our emptiness & struggle for meaning [our lives, the lives of people we care deeply for] we still mortgage our futures for the newest shiny thing in the window.

this has some pretty serious spiritual complications as well.

this compared with something my wife heard about, then we found on-line about the homeless middle-class.  more on that in a later post.  THAT is something that i’m truly wrestling with today!
