Insightful Thoughts on Sadness

Even though I'm generally a glass-half-full type, I thought this reflection on sadness were quite thought-provoking.

Thanks for the link to this. I tend to the darker side of things and I also tend to think those who see the "silver lining" are deluded. Fortunately I also have learned to not trust my tendencies, though sometimes I still do in spite of my intellectual apprehension of the dangers. sigh.
