happy house

  • a rust-colored study
  • abandoning your inhibitions
  • accepting whatever you are doing
  • taking the training wheels off and riding!
  • the sound of a key in the door or the garage door opening
  • an old-fashioned soapstone griddle
  • lavender in the meadow
  • jogging to the top of the Empire State Building
  • a fortuitous meeting
  • vines evolving from flowers to succulent purple fruits
  • Christmas present guesses
  • the flat feet of waiters
  • peeling the wax off a round of cheese
  • the shape of ice cubes coming out of the freezer
