Happiness. Does it truly exist? Or is it, as some say, just an imaginary concept created by Man to give life meaning? And what of its pursuit? Is it really worth it? For many, its effects seem so fleeting. Merely lasting seconds, not years.
But no matter, because it IS worth it, and you must always keep the faith, no matter how hopeless and bleak times may seem. Find solace in the things that truly make you happy. Whether it's old friends, your partner, traveling, concerts, The Cure, whatever it is for you, that keeps you from being "lost forever in a happy crowd."
All this, simply to say, chin up! Darkest before the dawn. Silence before the big bang. Wonderful things are just around the corner. You just can't quite see them yet. But one day, you will.
Update (5/5/11): Now that the news is out, I'll highlight the clues in red. : )
