There's plenty of reasons to feel down these days, but savoring the simple pleasures of life is one of the more satisfying ways of battling the urge to take up residence in Mopeyville:
Based on a a piece of Chinese writing called Chin’s Thirty-Three Happy Moments. Chin Shengt’an was a 17th century playwright who found himself stranded with a friend in a temple for ten days because of a rainstorm. While secluded, the pair compiled a list of the truly happy moments in life.
The wonderful thing about Chin’s Happy Moments is their lack of piety. Material pleasures are not rejected in favour of loftier ones.
