Simple Things

"Learning the simple things that please us make for an artful life." ~Julia Cameron
I've been pondering that phrase, and made a list of simple objects that please my eye, and simple moments that please me:
  • Sitting down to meals with my husband (especially breakfast)
  • Phone calls from our kids
  • Smiles and hugs from the grandbabies
  • Waking up early without an alarm
  • Cobalt blue glass
  • Soaking in the bathtub
  • Ticonderoga pencils
  • My father's fractometer
  • Mom's alligator travel case
  • Elegant or unusual pens
  • Playing the piano
  • Dark glossy wood, especially mahogany
  • Receiving real mail (snail mail)
  • Quality spiral notebooks
  • Laughing
  • Making others laugh
  • Being rewarded with outtakes after sitting through all the credits.
