A Few of My Favorite Things

  1. Clean sheets
    I love the smell and feel.
  2. Putting my thoughts on paper.
    No one has to read it. Just getting them out of my head makes me feel better and more clear.
  3. Good pens on quality paper.
    It makes writing feel like a special treat.
  4. Organization
    When my surroundings are organized, I feel calm. When they are not I feel edgy and frustrated.
  5. Words
    A turn of phrase either in song or in writing that makes me feel like I've glimpsed something heavenly. Whether beautiful or sad, it leaves me with a sense of longing.
  6. Commonplacing
    Collecting the words above in one place.
  7. My Dogs
    They think I'm great and they're always happy to see me.
