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.
“The Happiness Machine” by Ray Bradbury
And of course like all good stories, there is something to be learned about happiness in this classic from Ray Bradbury.
To your happiness!
