I read once that Happiness is what happens when you go to bed on the hottest night of the summer, a night so hot, that you don't want to wear anything, that you need to sleep on top of the sheets instead of under them (even though I personally hate sleeping on top of the sheets)
 Then at some point late, late, late at night, say just before dawn, the heat finally breaks and the night turns cool, you feel a breeze and briefly wake up, you notice that your almost chilly, and in your groggy, half-conciousness you reach over and pull the sheet around you and just that flimsy little sheet makes you feel warm enough and safe...
 and you drift back to sleep.  And it's that reaching gesture, that reflex, we have to PULL what's warm - whether it's something or someone - towards us, that feeling we get when we do that,  when we wrap that sheet or that person around us, that feeling of being safe in the world and drifting back to sleep, that's happiness to me :)

xoxo, V
