1.  My son, smiling at me with such innocence
2.  Seeing flowers in bloom which I had planted
3.  To be alone and feel alone but not lonely
4.  Breeze upon my face
5.  Rain

a love nudge from a horse
a smile from my daughter
a rainbow
a cool breeze on a sultry day
three coins in MY fountain (???)
a passionate kiss
the thought of another day coming my way
a good strong cup of coffee
a passionate write
a passionate dream
a passionate...
I need another cup of java

-anything from a horse, especially the wind hitting my face while we're galloping down the road
-knowing that even though it hurts right now, I will be okay
-knowing that I have found the ability to be happy again

(short list I know, but I've been so closed up from myself lately that even these three things are big to me )

... Even though you're gone ...

1. Stareing out the window on a rainy day.
2. The feeling of beeing high in the air with no risk of falling.

3. walking, and knowing I'm alone
4. going unreconized(probably the strangest one)
5. people like me
6. meeting someone who I intimidate
7. creating something tragicly beautiful
8. the sound of the acoustick guitar(exept when I play it. I make it sound like a dieing cat )
9. being cold, but not numb
10. being told I write, or draw, or sing like someone I admire
(ok, my list is scary, but it's the truth. I'm a strange person. Wow, I just learned a lot about myself. I liked reading the other ones too)


Don't it allways seem to go,
that you don't know what you've got till' it's gone

Being by water...hearing the waves, current, ripples, etc.

The way sunshine and wind feel on my skin.

Driving with the windows down at night
and the tunes turned up loud.

Rain at night.

Mark's voice on the phone..or when he plays his guitar or native american flute for me.

The sound of my kids laughter.

When someone tells me I have really great kids.(gratefully, it happends a lot)

When I write a poem.

Reading poetry.

The contentment found in the connections of friendship.

1. My nephew's cheeky grin.
2. Waking up every morning, never knowing what the day will bring.
3. Being greeted by my (very excitable) dogs, even if I've only been gone five minutes!
4. Memories.
5. Being warm in bed and not having to get up.

There's a start. Might think of some more later.

1) Any time spent with any of my children (rare when they are teens)
2) Having the freedom to have a purple bedroom (I dare anyone to figure out the meaning behind that).
3) Starbucks Ice cream under the blanket, while watching a great movie.
4) Being told that I am a beautiful person and knowing they truely mean what they say
5) Feeling a warm hand on the small of my back
6) Having him cup my face while he kisses me
7) Sunshine, good music and the ocean
8) #5 & 6 together on the beach on a sunny day....um...dang

Nature.... William Wordsworth is my hero
Music, especially classical.... My newest favourite is Saint Matthew's Passion, Bach.
Poetry.... enough said, yes?

Hmmmm....

It wasn't sex. (not even sex in vinyl, Raph.)

(not even sex in vinyl with a Brit--or an Aussie.) Though it IS intriguing.

I read all of these and I think the thing that hit the closest home to me was Raph's answer of a baby's eyes.

Something about that, yanno?

Just makes me happy.

1)My daughter running full bore at me to give me a hug when I go to visit or to pick her up.
2)Spending time with my son, and having intelligent conversations with him
3)Being on stage with the amps turned to 15 and the lights so hot that I lose 20 pounds of water weight (especially with a good crowd).
4)Reading what my favorite poets have mused.
5)*Enter your favorite adult action here*

We see the light of those
Who find the world has passed them by
Too late to save a dream from growing cold...

cups of tea
laughing
when my mum is happy
live music
tea tree oil
mascara
reading others words and thoughts
loving and being loved
clean sheets
malibu and coke
beer
listening to the sea, looking up at the night sky
kissing
cuddling
taking photographs of friends
losing weight (lol)
my elderly friends at the salvation army
listening to them reminisce
singing to myself
moshing
being a part of pip
lennon, mc cartney, starr, harrison
people brushing my hair
my brothers kind soul
loud music
dancing around my house
sitting in my garden
my beautiful memories of being in love.
