In these moments we are driven to try and hoard happiness by taking photographs, but I know better.

It's crisp and fresh and mellow and snug, solemn and melancholy. And it's very, very welcome."

At any rate, that is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great. When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep."
