Diana fills me up.
and oh, my....so many things.
A cool breeze on a hot day, hugs, hugs, and more hugs, kindness from strangers, and yes, of course, poetry. Especially when you're not expecting that--you know the moment--when you just accidentally hit on a poem right here in the forum that feels like the author is speaking directly to you. Music, too. Especially when it's my son, and he doesn't know I'm listening. (I stand outside his door sometimes, holding my breath out of fear he will hear me breathing, and I hear him play something like "Moonriver" in that jazzy style of his.
My daughter's eyes, too. They are so very blue with one unexpected splash of brown...
And then there's the joy of just connecting with someone during conversation, and you know that you are both "on the same page" because they say the same thing, in the same words that you are thinking.
And last, but not least--saying hello to old friends.
Now y'know there is more--something as simple as "puppy breath" to watching a school of neon guppies in an aquarium make that sudden collective decision to turn, en masse the way that they do.
A cup of really good coffee in the morning, and oh my, rainbows, shooting stars, and the total surprise of waking up in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
And seeing old friends--did I mention that?
and OH. I really, really love when you catch a stranger's baby staring at you, and when you look the infant in the eye, it smiles at you.
So yeah, I'll rank making new friends with "catching up" with old ones.
So how ya been? *hugs*hugs*andmorehugs*
