Anonymous said: Are you happy?
I keep remembering that I have strawberries! They’re quite delicious dipped in sour cream and rolled in brown sugar. In the moments when I recall their proximity, I am overcome by the urge to remind those around me that I have forgotten and now again remembered that I have strawberries (and also lotsa whipped cream). I am lacking lactose, though.
Recently, I’ve been about as happy as I’ve made up my mind to be. Which is to say, not ecstatic. I’ve been slowly re-centering myself on contentment. I’m pretty well-off, all things considered. Happiness with my steady-state is nearby, and just requires a bit more settling as the semester revs up, digs in, and shifts into gear.
