What Hedonism Sounds Like

One of my favorite places to be is E's school on the last day of the year to hear the final dismissal bell.

THAT is the sound of happiness -- children streaking up and down the halls without a care in the world, giggling, smiles exploding from there innocent faces.

Remember the feeling?! Three months of sleeping late, swimming, popsicles, lazy hours running amok -- all stretched out before you. Back in the days when three months was still a long time...

I am missing that sound today, because I am working... but I remember.

1. the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the highest good.
2. devotion to pleasure as a way of life.
