For she who helps me to tame happiness

Something is instilled into me when, whilst sitting on a park bench watching my kids at play, I contemplate the drift of my thoughts. Or, when the sun surprises me halfway through an errand, I take the time to stop and to let its rays caress me through my eyelids. Or when I am cuddled against my lover, half-listening dreamily to the radio.

These moments share the feeling of a slowing of time, a serene opposition to the polyrhythm of contemporary life, a well-being into contemplation… Happiness, ineffable, emerges as a slow, voluptuous meditation… To paraphrase Daniel Pennac: they are “radiant enigmas.”

[v-11]
