but a good
deal of talent
to know in which direction to point that organ." ~ W. H. Auden
Most people know which way their nose is pointed,
except for the drunk or the emotionally unbalanced
who get their direction from their addiction.
The sufferer usually can't believe or do not want to believe
what lies right under their nose.
Seek direction from family, the functional ones, friends,
the sober ones, and a Higher Power, the one whose directions
everyone should be following.
Happiness is not in where we stand, but in what direction
we are moving, we must sail sometimes with the wind
and sometimes against it.
Happiness is clearly seeing good in the direction one is headed.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
