For the love of lists: Things that make me happy
Because it's never too harmful to remind oneself that life is full of tiny huge gifts of joy, here are some things that make me happy:
Flowers. Tea. Getting my nails done. Creating a great new outfit. Books (or the idea of 'em, because I have lost all of my reading habits.) Great music as in jazz and Greenday and Fleet Foxes and Chilean folklore and classical and cheap disco music. CHILDREN. Friends that matter. Beautiful days. Trench coats. The smell of old paperbacks. When my room is finally tidy. Pretty houses. The sea. Puppies and kitties and the fact that I can indeed love both at the same time. Getting flirted. Food. Pretty streets. Live music. Art. Fridays. Lipstick. Developing them analogues. Trees. Wind. Rain. Clear blue skies. Laying on the grass with the sun flirting with me. Did I mention flirting? Poetry. Poetry books. Did I mention books?
I am sorry readers but spring has arrived and the grey cloud of moodiness spicing my blog posts has left. I am an existentialist as ever but right now I'm just enjoying the magnolias.
So there, I just created a life motto.
"But right now I'm just enjoying the magnolias."
