I don't have that many I'm afraid, I've a lot more of the opposite.

For me nothing compares to the sense of euphoria following a big dump. Nobody can take that away from me, not that I'm suggesting they want that.

So sorry to hear that Snow hug

But you know, the halcyon moments stand out so much because of their quality there are not always many of those moments ...
Although when one reaches a certain inner peace, just sitting watching a butterfly flying about and landing on a flower can have a "halcyon" quality about it bouquet

Thanks for sharing CC! Glad you're aware not many people will be rushing to steal that moment from you laugh

Going in through the gates of university the first few times, full o hope and expectation, that was pretty good.

That sounds pretty big!! Wow!!!

First time I set foot at Uni I loathed it ... can't do crowds and such a mixture of different energies waltzing about ... I always admire people who are at ease in big crowds ...

Yeah it's funny that, the things that people like can have the opposite effect on other people. I loved the crowds, the novelty, the presence of girls, the whole environment. By the end of it I felt the total opposite but those first days were good alright.

I can really relate to this....Bob Dylan's Dream.

While riding on a train goin' west
I fell asleep for to take my rest
I dreamed a dream that made me sad
Concerning myself and the first few friends I had

With half-damp eyes I stared to the room
Where my friends and I spent many an afternoon
Where we together weathered many a storm
Laughin' and singin' till the early hours of the morn

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung
Our words were told, our songs were sung
Where we longed for nothin' and were quite satisfied
Talkin' and a-jokin' about the world outside

With haunted hearts through the heat and cold
We never thought we could ever get very old
We thought we could sit forever in fun
But our chances really was a million to one

As easy it was to tell black from white
It was all that easy to tell wrong from right
And our choices they were few and the thought never hit
That the one road we traveled would ever shatter and split

How many a year has passed and gone
And many a gamble has been lost and won
And many a road taken by many a first friend
And each one I've never seen again

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
That we could sit simply in that room again
Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat
I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that

Thank you for posting this Selenite because all too often people get caught up with negativity and lose sight of the things we should be grateful for and that includes all the things and events in life that brought a smile to our face and joy that filled our heart and soul. Looking back, I can think of many things that made me happy and can't possibly list them all here....sometimes it's the smallest things that make all the difference in the world to us....a simple hug, a good friend, being one with nature....the list is endless. hug

Neat thread! For me, I think of those rare two- three day camping trips to the northern Oregon coast- the drive out from Portland was relaxing, the trip took about an hour and a half, there were great cafes and shops peppered along the way, people were warm and friendly. And then, the campground was so elegantly rustic— no motor vehicles allowed (you had to park above, take your gear down about a third of a mile.) I remember listening to a creek on one side and the lulling ocean on the other, all nestled in thick Douglas Fir and Ponderosa. It had to be the most perfect spot I knew of on earth. It meant so much to me because, although I loved much of city life, I longed for the wilderness and rural beaches. (Now I live it 24/7–Far out!!) next halcyon - probably my kitten Skedaddle—(Now I live it 24/7-far, far, farrrr out..sigh )
Nah, I’m pretty happy these days....it just got too quiet in the house...uh oh better go rescue him...Er, me, Er...roll eyes

thumbs up thumbs up Same. I worked SO bloody hard for it, but it really did unlock the door out of poverty, and I’ve been able to live a much fuller life, as well as the satisfaction of earning a college degree with my own two hands..pretty rad..banana
