Things I Love!
Dogs! All kinds of dogs. I love watching them. I love petting them. I love being around them.
Flannel sheets…there’s nothing like it in the winter. They aren’t as cold when you crawl in them, and they are so soft on the skin.
Flowers – the bright, wondrous beauty of them, the way they smell, the feeling of their petals.
Pizza and beer. Many years ago, I would have scoffed that I would place pizza on a list of things I love. I guess I’ve matured.
Watching skateboarding and surfing. I think this is somehow connected to the pizza thing.
Art in it’s many forms. Sometimes a line of a poem, or a particular painting, or some other expression of emotion in the world will just make me feel suspended for a moment.
Stories…this is why I love history and, I must admit, part of why I love doing therapy. I am entrusted with people’s stories. The variety of people’s experiences in the world is so awesome.
Warm afternoons, with nothing to do…especially nice if I am outside watching the clouds go by or sitting on the beach (in the shade or I burn).
Trivial Pursuit. I could play this game all the time.
Dancing. I love to feel my body moving. I used to dance in church…it felt like the truest form of worship.
Singing. There’s something so satisfying about belting out a good song.
Laughter – I don’t think I need to explain this one.
