Treasures 2005_10

Seeing is of course very much a matter of verbalization. Unless I call my attention to what passes before my eyes, I simply won't see. ... It's all a matter of keeping my eyes open.
-- Annie Dillard

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 soft white teddy bear in a furry green "frog costume" complete with hood with bulgy frog eyes on the top.

  • Catching live coverage of the cranes going under the Bay bridge

  • The soft sounds of four cats munching supper; Bebop's collar tag dings against the glass bowl.

  • Email from my Mom; iChats with my Dad

  • A "belated" birthday gift for me and an early one for Rich, from my folks

  • A nice soak in the hot tub with Rich

  • Raven patapatting my ankle as I walk by

  • Sourdough toast with peanut butter

  • Bebop snugged against my head as we drift off to sleep
