Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Those elusive moment of utter contentment that surprise me at various times.  I might be out to dinner with good friends, look around and think this is happiness. Or with someone I love and have the same experience. Or outside in a wild place. In each case it's a recognition of that particular moment as happiness. It comes upon me; I don't seek it out.
