Things that make me happy

  1. Savoring those rare moments when I don’t feel an inner compulsion to be moving on from whatever I’m actually doing. That is, when I’m free of that old weight of duty kicking in.
  2. As happens in Quaker worship. As well as Orthodox Easter and other feast days.
  3. The North Atlantic.
  4. Birds at the feeder. Or sighting an eagle or osprey anywhere, even hawks or hummingbirds.
  5. Fresh tomatoes or asparagus. Along with other things straight from the garden.
  6. Lobster, scallops, mussels, crabs. The joys of living so near the ocean.
  7. A good poem or novel, especially by an unknown writer.
  8. Musical performance that breaks free of convention while remaining true to the score.
  9. Arriving at a mountaintop by foot.
  10. Loving someone special. Especially.


Your turn.
