I haven't done a sketch like this in many many years. It's way too happy for me. I have a great life, but there's way too much going on out in the world to be this happy nowadays.
This is how I felt at breakfast time this morning, however. It's not what my breakfast looked like, but it's what I felt like having not read or heard the news yet. Happy. For me it harkens back to a time when we weren't at war, and there didn't seem to be so many people homeless, out of work and addicted. There was always a war going on somewhere in the world back then, homelessness, no work and addiction. But as far as we Americans knew - which, come to find out, is not a whole lot - this stuff wasn't a worry. Today it is.
So we do what we can and hope that what we do makes someone feel better somewhere out there.
