Treasures 2006_15

The sense of smell can be extraordinarily evocative,
bringing back pictures as sharp as photographs of scenes
that had left the conscious mind.


-- Thalassa Cruso,

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.

  • Delightful scents wafting from an outlet of "The Body Shop" in San Francisco — citrus overlaid with spice and a hint of chocolate. Inhale. Breathe. Ahhhhh.

  • An interview in SF and a call from a recruiter (who put my name in for another position).

  • Homemade 13-bean soup w/ ham

  • Jana's (brand) cranberry walnut oatmeal cookies

  • A Sunny Day! (first this week)

  • fun-with-words.com — a neat "new" web site to explore.

  • A very interesting talk by Jimmy Wales on Wikipedia and social computing.

  • The Datil Amandra (dates and nuts rolled in fillo, served warm with fresh whipped cream) at La Mediterranee one of our favorite restaurants.
