Happiness in a Moment

For a moment the world stops and Time itself can appear to stand still. Sometimes this odd limbo occurs because of severe depression - in that scenario the limbo lasts for days, weeks, or months and isn't pleasant. Sometimes the limbo occurs because of a particular event or feeling - in this scenario the feeling lasts perhaps a moment, a blink of an eye, and everything is even more pleasant than it was. I like these moments, and, of course, they happen rarely. The most recent one, for me, was talking to Cheyenne about God today.

It was, for a moment, one friend sharing with another friend how you truly feel and think about something. Usually people just don't get it, but when they do, it is one of those special time-warp-moments when everything is just perfect and you feel as if you might actually be doing something right in the great overview of Living. I hope so at least.
