I like this feeling, but I probably shouldn't.

It's dangerously close to happiness. Close enough that I can almost touch it. I can almost take that extra step, and shift my weight onto my leading foot, and see if it will hold me.

It looks fairly solid.

But what do I know about happiness?

It looks solid, but so does a cloud, until you get too close.

Wouldn't it be better to stand back, to admire this phenomenon from a safe distance? From far enough away that the illusion is maintained?

It's pretty fucking tempting though. To take that extra step. To see what happens.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
