  • anything dropped that does not break
  • syrup that doesn't disappear as soon as it hits the pancakes
  • giving myself totally to what I am writing about
  • playing alphabet search
  • garden frogs
  • bunny slopes
  • paying no attention to people who try to discourage me
  • national parks
  • shopping in factory outlet stores
  • creating a mural
  • learning a card trick
  • teachers who love their work
