Treasures 2006_41

To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring -
these are some of the rewards of the simple life.

— John Burroughs

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.

  • Pumpkin patch - an "aerial" view of a pumpkin sales lot, as seen from the passing train. All those bright orange pumpkins, gleaming roundly.

  • The smell of freshly mown, wet grass

  • barbequed tri-tip

  • A nice long nap with the kitties

  • The full moon, rising jack-o-lantern bright from behind the hills, illuminating strips of cloud above.

  • The "make your own garlic bread" at the new pizza place

  • My cookie fortune:

          "Sing badly, if you must, but sing"

    and the way it matched up with Rich's

          "An interesting musical opportunity is in your near future"
