Thread: Things that please you

    The smell of sunscreen and swimming pools.

    The frosting smoothness of fresh snow and the crunch of ice as you step into it.

    The coolness (or heat) of good tea.

    The smell of coffee on cold mornings.

    The smell of rain.

    Miss's list:

    and the movie Jaws.

    Thinking good things, leads to feeling good things, leads to good things happening.

    Just got a call from a young man we took in several summers, maybe twenty years ago, as a Fresh Air kid (intercity youth program of summer vacations in the country). One of those summers we took the kids along to Cooperstown, New York (Baseball Hall of Fame the wife wanted to see), and another we took the kids along on a camping trip in Maine.

    We'd sent Christmas cards to his mother's over the years, but hadn't heard from him in I don't know how many years.

    So, follow what I said in the first sentence and tell us where it gets you

    The simplest truths are written on the wall,
    where we see imaginary greatness in our fall.

    A proper lie in.

    Hot, fruit pie and ice cream.


    Being chatted up.


    As of yet I have been unable to tell my boss what I really think of him. I'm looking forward to doing so.

    An overcast, windy or rainy day.

    Autumn and it's smells, sights and celebrations

    When my daughter is excited or experiencing something fun for the first time

    Planning things: outings, vacations, parties

    Reading a good book

    Pounding out a productive writing session

    spending time with family

    Making my fussy coffee in the morning.

    Puppies. Children with puppies.

    Good beer and a baseball game. Or just the beer. Or just the baseball game.

    My wife asleep beside me.

    Washing the dishes while my wife bakes.

    Thunderstorms on the prairie.

    Local history, even the bits that are sad and tragic.

    My remaining grandmother, although she isn't a thing. My memories of my other grandparents and great-grandparents.
    Wisdom is seldom boisterous.

    The second cup of coffee in the morning. The first is always weird. But that second cup, I actually enjoy.

    That state of lucid sleepiness. It seems to produce some oddly surreal writing, which isn't my normal thing... but it's fun.

    Neat lawns with crisp edges and short blades of grass.

    The bright green of broccoli and beans after blanching.

    Pretty girls.

    Polished concrete.

    Floor jacks that actually fit under my car.

    Getting a design just right​.
    I have an extensive knowledge of Mean Girls quotes.

    When my mother laughs, because she's generally too worrisome.
    Books with illustrations.
    Having my sister and brother-in-law home for the holidays.
    Talking to my mentor in his office. One of the only people to whom I can truly open up.
    Cobblestone streets.
    When anyone Catholic and Orthodox are together. Black and white dresses.
    Sitting at a desk facing a wall and writing.
    Sitting in a movie theater before the show starts.

    A good sandwich.

    A good soup to dunk the sandwich in.

    A good tea to eat it with.

    A quiet place to eat it in.

    A good friend to sit with.
