Ah is this not happiness? #11

by Danielle Charles

Sometimes words are just not necessary.  Certain things in life, like a beautiful sunrise or a perfect starlit sky, are felt in a place deeper than language can penetrate – a place that unites us all in the universal experience of something extraordinary and beautiful.  We stood on the porch, one January morning, our mugs of tea warming our hands, and just gazed at this crimson and indigo sky in silence.  We, for those moments of colorful transformation, were like one beating heart rather than two, knowing and feeling the very same things. There wasn’t any reason, then, to speak of them.

Ah, is this not happiness?
