Lanny always thought that the next dollar could unlock the door to happiness. He dug holes of favors and built mountains of debt in order to purchase some nirvana... cars, clothes, watches, women, trips, all temporary fixes and expensive toys.
Promises proved empty, possessions a ball and chain. Simplicity eluded him as he boxed himself in.
Lanny spent his life in a pursuit of a happiness that really didn't cost a thing.
