I love those days where you feel lucky just to be included. That there's a sense of pride in being able to sit back and know that you are a member of a beautiful memory forming before your eyes. And, in that moment, if you can take a step back to realize what is happening in front of you - if you have the presence of mind to take a look into the memory you're now woven into, you might be able to smile at the beauty of the world, at the intricacy of our race, and be glad (for even just a moment) that you're alive.
... and then please, proceed to have another gin and tonic, because it certainly helps to make the feeling last :)
