I feel so stupid, happy and numb.

Oscar Levant said "Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you remember."

I'm gonna go ahead and call him a liar. This year more than any other I have been quite aware of my own happiness at the very time I was experiencing it: on the top of a double-decker tour bus in Rome; speeding down the freeway driving to nowhere in particular; just hanging out, whether it is with old friends, new friends or old friends that are new again. Perhaps as we get older we are better able to be in the moment?
