Little things

If you think small things do not make a difference,
try spending the night a room with mosquitoes.
–His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Loving the free and feelin’ spirit
Of huggin’ a tree when you get near it
Diggin’ the snow and rain and bright sunshine
Draggin’ the line (draggin’ the line)
I feel fine I’m talkin’ bout peace of mind
I’m gonna take my time I’m gettin’ the good sign
          -Draggin the Line, Tommy James and the Shondells
Things I like:
  • When I see someone let someone into traffic
  • The way food prices are marked by units at my grocery store so I can easily compare for value.
  • Iced green tea with honey on my patio that smells like jasmine in bloom.
  • Hearing a favorite song on the radio, even though I have the disk.
  • Babies laughing
  • Cats purring
  • The smell of onion, garlic and butter sauteing in my kitchen.
  • Sunsets
  • Sunrises
  • Finishing a good book.
  • Marking things off my to-do list
  • Making new friends
  • Hearing from old friends
  • Walk-in closets
    I swear, the closet is almost as big as my living area in Korea
  • Good food
  • New recipes
  • Farmers markets
  • Neverending lists of things I like.
