This essay cites seven story-vignettes to urge us to come alive, happily. They are: one, Tommy happily drawing; two, Tommy protesting against nap he needs; three, the first stone the sinless can cast to sinner; four, minnows happily swimming; five, Lady Beautiful happily kidnapped; six, a happy roadside skull; and seven, the happy spring. All these stories say, “Be here, now!” ever beyond, alive beyond alive. Conclusion tells of how these life vignettes repair and fill up seven ditches dug out by logical thinking, by story-showing how reasonable being alive is, and urges us all, “Be here, now!”
