happy house

  • the hot steam wafting from the vents on New York City morning
  • browsing through a favorite art book
  • Mouse Island, Corfu
  • that there is no place on earth looking quite so good to a man as his own old-fashioned farm kitchen
  • crossing a stream on a log
  • Fortune magazine
  • sharing goodies with other campers or picnickers
  • the wild geranium bowing under the weight of dew
  • not having any work to do over the weekend
  • reinventing yourself
  • style making you feel buoyant
  • landing lights
  • gasoline rainbows in puddles
  • thinking of your cubicle as the Bat Cave of Hygge
