Ron Van Dyke – What Does The Facade Of The Clown Face Hide? – 17 May 2013

Uploaded on 17 May 2013 by Ron Van Dyke I do understand the desire to feel happy, and recognize the pursuit of happiness as a reality for most, if not all people. Who likes feeling sad or derives pleasure from living in misery? Perhaps some do, in a twisted sort of way, living off the sympathy of others by throwing constant pity parties. For me, and I cannot speak for everyone, I have have always felt suspicion of those that always seem to project a happy countenance as their public facade. “Get real!” is what I think to myself. I know that the clown often uses mirth to cover the deep-seated pain felt inside. That’s why I’ve long endeavored to be authentic, even though it is often perceived and labeled negative by those who insist in only showing the good side of themselves. I like to be able to rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
