The red Lamborghini did little to improve Paula Poundstone's mood. She says she was "feeling like a jerk" as she drove it through Los Angeles, a self-inflicted experiment to discover the secret to happiness. "We live in a world where there's a lot of people who don't have homes," she says. "And who wants to drive by that in a Lamborghini? You know, I don't like walking by it to get on the train. So it just it creates a much more stark reminder of the inequities, you know, the imbalance in in our world. And you know normally I just walk down the street feeling helpless to help people." She also tried camping, taekwondo, volunteering and other activities as she searched for deep personal satisfaction. Some became habits.
Fascinating conversations with artists, authors, community leaders & newsmakers.
