A Fleeting Moment

Happiness is not something that I feel often, not the kind of deep happiness that settles over one and brings a sense of profound contentment and well-being.  For the past hour or so I have been intensely aware of this.  It started to descend, for all silly reasons, toward the end of my rebuilding my computer – knowing that a job is near the end.  From this, extrapolations into just the pleasures of doing, seeing, living.  Right now, my life is incredibly simple.  I have a week off, and the weather is gorgeous – warm and sunny with a gentle breeze moving through the hills.  Birds are singing.  Josh’s birthday is Friday, and there are nectarines ripening on the countertop for his birthday pie.  I’m listening to a novel that is entertaining and frightening because of the historical period in which it occurs, the main character is interesting.  I’m finishing up a second baby sweater for a friend expecting twin grandsons in a few days or weeks.  In my little corner of the world there is peace.
