I love dreamcatchers, feathers, and watching birds do what they do.
I love the colors of Colorado sunsets, shades of blue and green much like the sea.
I love big, clunky rings on my fingers, especially those of turquoise and silver.
I love Reese's cups still.
I love tea at night with a bit of honey.
I love alliterated words that pop unpredictably into my head like platypus, pitter patter, and panacea.
I love everything about books, the way they smell, the way they feel in my hands, the way a page sounds when it turns, and the way I can get lost without ever leaving home.
I love random acts of kindness, the way someone opens the door for you, gives you a smile, or brings you something you need without ever having asked them.
I love hearing my daughter call me "Fluffy".
After he's all tucked in at bedtime and should go to sleep, I love how my son tries to get more hugs and kisses by calling from his room "Mom, can you come back here?......Mom! I'm bleeding.......my finger's broken.......MOM, I'm paralyzed!!!!!"
I love microns and sharpies in a jar.
I love journals, old, new, handmade, lined or unlined, floppy or hardcover, they all make my heart do cartwheels.
I love the smell of verbena and lemongrass, pine and cypress.
I love soy lattes in the morning.
I love kale sauteed with olive oil, garlic, lemon and a little bit of soy sauce.
I love paper calendars and planners, despite the invasion of iCal and Google.
I love fall weather for soft, oversized cowls and knee high boots.
I love the sound of silence in the woods.
I love crisp November skies, so clear that every cloud sculpted and feathered by the wind is a gift to the eyes.
I love that in 10 minutes I can write without hesitation just a smidge of what I love so much.
much love to all of you
