Sustenance. Why not enjoy the things we like sustained? Why not relish
in what is liked timelessly to be left in a wonderful bliss? ... to take the
favorite moment and suspend it ... with all its beauty and mystery
experiencing its thrill ... its excitement ... sustained ... exploring it
as if it is unknown giving us a sense of danger ... risk ... that is happiness.
