Work = joy

I was listening to a zencast episode the other day and what got to me was  the what she said about expecting happiness, because we talk about that a lot in my "small circle of friends" -- ok, there's a quote looking for attribution -- phil ochs'.   

on anther subject:
"If you love your work you are either really lucky or really stupid."
- O.B. Joyful
-no, actually not him.

The point was that there is an attitude about happiness in which we think things like, "if I only had___, or, if I could only___,... I could be happy.   Clearly this is wrong.  But learning this is difficult.

Many are called, but few are chosen

Is that why there are so many Jews in show business?

We were taking about stereotypes the otheer night.
