Treasures 2008_05

Smells detonate softly in our memory
like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years.
Hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once.
A complex vision leaps out of the undergrowth.

-- Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses

These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Squirrel and Raven are working out how to play so that both of them enjoy it. Teddy Bear Fight!

  • License plate: 2H2ODGS (the plate holder said "Portuguese Waterdogs")

  • Falling asleep to the sound of rain; waking up to blue skies (even briefly. :-)

  • Cat beside me, kneading the blankets and purring

  • Squirrel gradually displacing the computer - my other laptop has fur!

  • The doppler effect - listening to the horn as the train goes past

  • An orange tree, covered in oranges

  • My fun and colorful birthday cake


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.
