I was on the bus and it was sailing through the streets of Auckland. I had ‘American Honey’ by Lady Antebellum on the iPod (shut up – I like country music – deal with it). The sun was shining off to the west – with that golden light which you get at sunset. Also it was nearly 7pm and the sun was still out which was nice. I had just been to Lounge at the University and listened to some spectacular poetry. I knew there was a glass of save waiting for me at home, where I could brag about my successful presentation for one of my courses (which was awesome).
I had a nice moment where I was happy to be alive and in the city. One of those rare moments of absolute contentment. Despite the two essays and forty thousand other things I have to do.
It was really a wonderful moment.
