PURPOSE: Jiminy Cricket Had It Right

by Nanette Fynan

Age 59. Santa Rosa, CA. 

I think happiness is important. It is the purpose of my life.

The very serious of this world have made a point of telling me how foolish I am. Foolishness is its own reward. My day is made every time I lighten somebody’s heart. If I can unburden someone and take them out of themselves, I’ve done my job. I’m a musician. I don’t perform music, I share music. Music is the language that touches people deep inside in a way that words never will. I didn’t take my calling seriously until our pastor explained that having the skill and insight to provide a moment of happiness is the most rare gift. People need to see the funny and fun sides of things.

Jiminy Cricket had the right idea. Somebody has to fiddle to keep the workers steps light and joyful.

Somebody has to have the vision to take life and put it into perspective. Jiminy Cricket had the right idea. Somebody has to fiddle to keep the workers steps light and joyful. And for that I have received uncounted rewards; smiles of happiness and gratitude.
