Incorrect sentence usage

A good sentence in a definition or example uses a statement that helps further understand the word, the girl could be happy, ugly, short, dead, and I know nothing to distinguish otherwise. "Living with my father on the beach is a halcyon remembrance"

Halcyon is wrong.

Halcyon is not "calm, Peaceful." It means "denoting a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful."
