During my teenage years I read a lot of science fiction. Writers like Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Ray Bradbury.
Bradbury died earlier this summer, June 5, at the age of 91 after a long illness. During his 91 years though he wrote some great novels, short stories, and essays. Among those was a story called “The Happiness Machine” which was contained in his 1957 novel “Dandelion Wine.”
A couple of years ago, the Saturday Evening Post reprinted the original version of “The Happiness Machine” which you can still read online or download as a PDF file.
And of course like all good stories, there is something to be learned about happiness in this classic from Ray Bradbury.
To your happiness!
