Possibilities

I want to be an open vessel for otherwise unthought thoughts;
a tranquil glass of tequila, ready to be injusted and enjoyed.
A single rain drop or snowflake or tear stain or puddle splash;
content to have had one moment in the sun.
I want to be the echo of swallow calls in a cave;
light refracted from window to wall;
diamonds reflected from stilled waters.

5 Things

Five things that make me smile

1. Water lillies (because I don’t often see them and their beauty surprises me every time)

2. The movie Bottle Rocket (because I wish I had a yellow jumpsuit)

3. Irony (because in its truest form, it can be hugely entertaining)

4. Goldfinches (because they zip about in a chattering way and I wish I understood their language)

5. A passing Karmann Ghia (because someday I will learn to drive a stick)

A list

This list inspired by Susannah Conway’s post today:

Reading: The Time in Between by Maria Dueñas

Feeling: Glad to see the sun for two days in a row

Smelling: The tang of cut grass

Tasting: Blueberry coffee

Listening: John Gorka

Creating: New graphics for a client’s website

Wanting: More energy

Pondering: The book I’m reading (mentioned above) has brought back so many conversations of my childhood home. How does our past mold the people we become in the future?

And lastly, one of my own:
Remembering: A walk along the rim of the Grand Canyon after a storm

thoughts from the forest
