Treasures 2006_24

Sit quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.

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.

  • A horse, with jockey, rounding the track at Bay Meadows as I went past on the train.

  • The Jacaranda trees in bloom in Mountain View in a profusion of purple.

  • Hummingbirds sipping nectar at the weird bushes behind the building where I'm working.

  • Congenial co-workers who eat lunch together, and readily invite me to join them, at the new Job.

  • Roast lamb with blueberry sauce, crispy sugar snap peas with red bell pepper strips, and fluffy quinoa with pecans, apricots, and cranberries.

  • A tasty open-faced turkey, bacon, avocado, tomato, lettuce, and Havarti cheese sandwich, toasted.

  • Taking a cool shower on a warm day, then stretching out on the bed for half an hour of restful relaxation.

  • Bebop lying out on my chest, floofing his tail back and forth across my neck.

  • Coming home an hour early on Friday.

  • Friday evening after a week of work (I'm getting paid, but going out to Work is stressful. I've been looking forward to Friday evening since Monday morning.)
