Treasures 2006_13

The two offices of memory are collection and distribution.
-- Samuel Johnson

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Another mousie (wood rat) in the bird feeder (munch munch)

  • A little girl's umbrella, bright green with stick-up cloth "eyes" and a painted mouth. I asked her if her frog liked the rain and she said I was silly.

  • Snowshoe feet - Squirrel performing his full-body four-footed kneading ritual on the blanket on the couch

  • A blue helium-filled balloon, floating gently, three feet off the ground, alone at the end of an aisle in the grocery store. What do balloons shop for?

  • Tangelos, juicy and sweet

  • Listening to the sound of rain on the screenporch roof

  • A fun new font - cat silhouettes!

  • A nice long afternoon nap with Raven

  • Munging Squirrel's ears

  • My nicely warm office, after implementing Rich's suggestions for making it more snug against cold air.
