  • I love:

    A good run
    A deep sleep
    Crazy dreams
    The cool light of a full moon beaming in my bedroom window
    A new pen
    A blank page
    Making something useful and beautiful
    Brody's gap-toothed grin when I pick him up from school on Fridays
    Garlic on lemon-basted salmon
    An ice-cold beer at the end of a long hike
    Playing my flute outdoors
    Comfortable shoes
    Chocolate in my coffee
    Paddling a kayak
    Palms and Ponderosas
    The color red
    A grandchild cuddled close

    and, of course,
