Get on the Happy Bus

Tim Keller, Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, said in a recent sermon about music as a spiritual discipline that it’s practically impossible to commit suicide while listening to Handel’s Messiah. And in that same vein, it’d be pretty unlikely that one could drive around in this van and be (or stay) miserable. Once inside could you forget that Horton (that’s Horton, right?) is smiling on a plaid landscape (even in spite of some too-close contact with other vehicles)? Could you actually grumble and complain behind those groovy chocolate-colored linen curtains which keep the fun in and the rays out? This is a picnic car, a roadtrip car, a happymobile — not a grit-your-teeth-through-gridlock machine. Why aren’t we all driving one? Dignity is overrated.
