Treasures 2005_16

I suspect that we are all recipients of cosmic love notes. Messages, omens, voices, cries, revelations, and appeals are homogenized into each day's events. If only we knew how to listen, to read the signs.
-- Sam Keen

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 burnt orange Scion XB. I pulled up next to it, rolled down the window and said "Pretty color". The drive said "They only made 2100 of this color".

  • Getting Rich's taxes mailed!

  • Squirrel sitting next to me as I type, patting me on the arm at midnight. "Mama? It's time to stop that. Pet me and then come upstairs."

  • A baby red maple tree, in the back of a pickup truck, on it's way to be planted.

  • A cute wooly doggy, on his human's lap, head out the car window, enjoying the ride.

  • A "happy face" license plate frame (on a car in front of us at the Post Office).

  • The ability to work at home in the afternoons. When the mornings are noisy and distracting, the afternoons bring relief.

  • Mezzaluna trilling on my chest. Raven asking for a snuggle and a belly rub. Squirrel pummeling the blanket on the couch next to me. Bebop head-bumping me as I type.

  • Fresh fruit. Wonderful strawberries. Comice pears.
