Entry: Happiness

We invest so much effort, chasing something we call happiness. I think that peace of mind, something to look forward to, and enough emotional room to be generous add up to close heaven for me. . . . As I look back, my moments of highest "happiness" were moments when I wasn't thinking about how I was feeling at all.

It is true.

You can be so overjoyed
that you cry.

It is also true.

You can be so despairing
that you laugh.

I don't remember the feeling of happy,
but I'll never forget the feeling of joy.
