Living on the Sunny Side: History, Misery, Stories, Smiles
I HAVE TO PAY EXTRA TO TAKE A SUITCASE WITH ME ON VACATION? I tried to 'travel light' by packing everything I needed in a carry-on. Then found out my connecting flight gate was about two miles from the arrival gate, and I only had ten minutes to get there! The carry-on got heavier with each step! There was a price to pay, and it was a lot more than coughing up the cost of checking one lousy suitcase! The same is true of the EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE we all carry with us. If you've stayed mad at someone for more than forty-eight hours... if you haven't spoken to Aunt Marie for twenty years... or still fume at the boyfriend/girlfriend that dropped you to date your sibling... you're definitely not traveling light. You pay with your health: being angry is stressful, and constant stress really can make you sick. And if you're stressed, angry, and sick, you're not really enjoying your life, are you? LIVING ON THE SUNNY SIDE is a personal memoir. It's about the fun and adventures the author had growing up in California in the mid-twentieth century; about the amazing summer she worked in the Yosemite high country; and about the funniest near-death experience she ever had. It's about four totally wrong marriages; teaching ballet and acting; and learning that in North Carolina, "How's y'awl?" doesn't mean "How are you?" Oh, yeah... and it's about why she thought her mother hated her. Writing it, Sunny says, was truly a voyage of self-discovery, understanding, and healing. She hopes her insights and discoveries can start readers on their own paths to traveling lighter by losing some of their own 'baggage'.
