# 8- A glimpse of happiness



Moments of happiness are there to be seized. Yesterday mine appeared as I sat waiting above a fifteen meters high waterfall. All alone in the eddy I was surrounded by the sound of the river flowing through the canyon, with the water echoing throughout the polished walls. Mine was a glorious moment of perfect happiness – a realisation that I was happy to be just there, exactly there. I was mesmerized by the currents swirling endlessly toward the lip of the waterfall, and upon hearing the whistle from the guys at the bottom of the falls I paddled out and fell into moments of perfectness.
