Raindrops on Roses…

12 Feb

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d depart from my typical blog faire and make a list of the many things I love. I invite you to do the same. Now when I say “things that we love” I don’t mean diamond rings, fast cars and fur coats. I mean the non-materialistic things that we love on a deeper level. Here goes: 

– bouganvilla growing in clumps 

– the smell of coffee and bacon 

– steam rising off the swimming pool at dawn

– dark organic chocolate

– popcorn smothered with butter (to be eaten at the movies)

– sitting on a surf board like it’s a horse while taking in the vast beauty of H20, cliffs & sunlight

– the feel of my body as it moves and breathes and dances

– when my two cats both sit in my lap while I’m reading

– the smell of babies

– being held in someone’s arms

– being tickled

– the incredible quiet when snow softly falls

– Journey community church

– God

– The bible

– dear friends

– libraries and books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

– The Big Sur

– My grandmother’s house

– the house I grew up in

– losing myself while writing

– steak

– the feel of sun on my face

– napping on Sunday afternoons and watching football

– having a glass of wine in airports while writing and waiting to board a plane 

– window seats

– Nancy Drew books

– my best friend

– the people who I can be 100% myself with and still be loved

– freedom

– classical music


– laughing so hard I snort

– learning to read Greek at age 40
