Happy in my kayak

Facebook friend Tess recently posted the Jack Kerouac quote "Happiness consists in realizing it is all a great strange dream."  He has a point if the dream is falling off of a cliff but ...

... he's obviously wrong when the experience is paddling in confused seas ...

... with salt spray pouring over the deck and myself and the drizzle build up on my glasses that feels like I'm looking through sandblasted glasses.

I think happiness is the feeling of being alive that today certainly could not have been a dream, the real experience  verified by corroborative evidence from Brian and Hazen when we had coffee afterwards.  Surely we didn't all have the same dream.
