Poppy is a happy girl. I love the sound of that !! As if how can someone called poppy can ever not be happy :). Yes, she is sweet, warm, funny and nice - a little too nice sometimes, your general do-gooder. A soft ball of sweet sunshine wrapped in wool. She lives in the world we live in and nothing seems to get her down. I just loved her playful unflappable spirit. Shes gotta go down as one of the most lovable characters I have ever seen in movies.

We always wonder if we are happy. We often ask ourselves - why not? We love blaming the place and the time we live in, love coming up with theories, pipe dreams, what-ifs, if-onlys and what-nots. Sometimes we go after the little things our hearts desire but more often than not we postpone the very thing that needs to be done. It all seems so complicated - this business of finding happiness and meaning. This business of life. Or maybe it's not. I don't know :).


  1. the poster shows a yellow smiley faced trampoline.. Anyone would be super happy if they got to jump on it.. :P

  5. a great man once said .. "there is no such thing as a stupid joke".
    and he also said .. "if no body laughs at your jokes, you start laughing yourself"
