It’s been mighty serious around here lately. On recent programs, we’ve discussed poverty, crime, guns, missing persons, the homeless – all important issues, to be sure. But let’s face it, sometimes, the news can be downright depressing.

So, on this edition of Houston Matters, we take a little break from the trials and tribulations of Greater Houston, to discuss some good news — those things happening in your life that make you happy. We asked our listeners to share what uplifting news they have. And you can still e-mail us your happy news at talk@houstonmatters.org or Tweet @HoustonMatters.

We also pepper the program with the power of positivity as we seek out happy thoughts from Dr. Quentin Dinardo, an area clinical psychologist and psychotherapist who focuses on “positive psychology,”  Deborah Heisz, Editorial Director for the Texas-based online magazine Live Happy, and Houston Public Media’s own Ernie Manouse, whose generally cheery disposition automatically qualifies him as an appropriate contributor to the discussion.
