A Message from The Confederacy of Dunce’s Minister of Health and Asylums

Oops, Someone is having a Bad Day

Each and every day we make choices. We choose what to eat, what to wear, what to say and how we occupy our time. May I also remind you that you can also choose your mood. It is like selecting a crayon from the collection assembled in an old cardboard box.

Do you choose blue and make the day a dreary one for you, your family, coworkers and friends?
Do you choose yellow and color a bright happy day?
Or perhaps you choose something in-between.

Remember, you cannot color a mood and stay between the lines. The color of your mood seeps across the lines on the page and into the drawings of those around you. Your mood affects everyone you come in contact with. Choose carefully.

On behalf of the Ministry of Health I urge you to become master of your mood. Choose your color remembering its effect on you and those around you.

With the Best Wishes for a Bright Day

Minister Cyrus Cornelia
Ministry of Health and Asylums


  1. Dear Minister Cornelia, I would gladly paint the world green at this very moment...but Mother Nature keep trumping my paintbrush with winter's dismal gray. Perhaps you could convince the weather goddess..Meteora
    to change her paint palet to "Spring" colors? OR...Maybe you & Mr.Punxsutawney could broker a deal for some at least some temperatures above freezinG!!!

  2. An excellent thought: pick a color for the day. I think I'll choose hot pink today--bright, warm, feminine, but not too hot.
