fleeting glimpses

do you ever have this feeling where, in the moment, everything seems perfect and assured, but you know that soon thereafter whatever it was you're experiencing will just fade away into oblivion?  it's like a bunch of atoms get together in the universe for a few moments and all is perfect and then they all just dissipate never to reconfigure in the same way.  now i'm not refering to anything specifically, it's just that this particular form of cognitive dissonance is always the toughest for me to handle.  because in the moment you want to believe that those atoms are going to stay configured, but you kind of know that they won't, and i guess i wonder if maybe they would stay configured, if you believe hard enough that they should.

I actually love those moments. They sort of.. feel momentarily aligned. Like, a glimpse that everything is okay - and that the chaos is just some bad 3D glasses on top of reality.
