Stepping into the elevator at work, catching an unexpected whiff. It’s not his scent, or that of anyone I’ve been with recently, but it’s dark and musky and reminiscent of happiness long ago. I revel in it, forgetting for a moment my truffle, thick and chocolatey on my tongue.

It’s Wednesday afternoon, middle of the work day, but outside it’s gorgeous. I can’t sit still at my desk. My new car sits lonely and sad at the far end of the parking lot, begging to be driven. And so I yield to her siren song. Walking across the parking lot, I bask in the juxtaposition of sensations: the softness of my light gray sweater, the cozy warmth of the sun on my face, just the right amount of breeze caressing me all over. My mind wanders to sunny Sunday afternoons in Shoreline Park: sun, grass, breeze. All the same elements. Feeling, consciously appreciately all the sensations on my skin. I’m forever touching and smelling things. As if I’m desperately trying to absorb all of life through my senses. As if I’ll run out of time to experience everything.

I pull out of the parking lot, slow and cautious. Down Delaware street, crawling along, windows down and music playing. No single aspect of this stands out right now, but my serotonin is flowing and I could burst out crying from happiness. Everything is beautiful and lovely and perfect and I want to stay in this moment forever. Near downtown, I turn around. When I pull back into the parking lot, it’s barely been ten minutes since I left. But life is suddenly a little better, a little brighter, a little happier. For no reason.
