They are simple childlike images painted over a dark background, reflecting the darkness and fear a child can experience within their home. When asked about the recurring theme of the house in his paintings and films, Lynch replied that rather than being concerned with global issues, he is more interested in what happens in the surrounding neighbourhood.

    Pursuit of Happiness: A Fleeting Moment of Self-Satisfaction When we congratulate each other on an important event in our lives, an indispensable component of our wishes is happiness. We all have our own understanding of happiness. According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary (2008), one of the definitions of happiness is “a pleasurable or satisfying moment”. For some people satisfaction comes with money, for others with a good grade or a well-done job. Thus, happiness is extremely subjective: the sources of happiness are actually as different as the people who
