Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht. Skovsbostrand, Denmark. 1934.


"Things are only mannequins and even the great world-historical events are only costumes beneath which they exchange glances with nothingness."  Walter Benjamin, "Protocols to the Experiments on Hashish, Opium and Mescaline"  1927
"Let nothing be called natural
In an age of bloody confusion,
Ordered disorder, planned caprice,
And dehumanized humanity, lest all things
Be held unalterable!” Bertolt Brecht, “The Exception and the Rule”  1937

Happiness is, finding a pencil Knowing a secret Telling the time Happiness is, learning to whistle Tying your shoe for the very first time! Happiness is playing the drums in your own, school band And happiness, is walking hand in hand. Happiness is, two kinds of ice cream Pizza with sausage Climbing a tree Happiness is, five different crayons Catching a firefly Setting him free Happiness, is being alone every now, and then And happiness, is coming home again. Happiness, is having a sister Sharing a sandwich Getting along! Happiness, is singing together when day, is through, and happiness is those who sing with you. Happiness is morning and evening, daytime and nightime too. For happiness, is anyone, and anything, at all, that’s loved, by you!

Happiness is, finding a pencil
Knowing a secret
Telling the time
Happiness is, learning to whistle
Tying your shoe for the very first time!
Happiness is playing the drums in your own, school band
And happiness, is walking hand in hand.
Happiness is, two kinds of ice cream
Pizza with sausage
Climbing a tree
Happiness is, five different crayons
Catching a firefly
Setting him free
Happiness, is being alone every now, and then
And happiness, is coming home again.
Happiness, is having a sister
Sharing a sandwich
Getting along!
Happiness, is singing together when day, is through, and happiness is those who sing with you.
Happiness is morning and evening, daytime and nightime too. For happiness, is anyone, and anything, at all, that’s loved, by you!
