Color Them Golden and Bright

The fog is hanging over the bay, making  the day soft and fuzzy.   I thought I’d try to shine a bright light in my world. A list of things I love, in no particular order. Color them Golden and Bright:

  • Laughing
  • A face that lights up, happy to see me
  • Mangoes
  • Baseball
  • A bath so hot that my hair sweats.
  • The dogs’ excitement at the idea of food
  • Thick, pliable yet smooth hand-made paper
  • Ripe fresh-picked tomatoes
  • Pomegranates
  • Passionate conversations
  • Spell-check

  • Any Thai food
  • The steady rhythm of a good walk
  • Coffee
  • Secrets shared

  1. Im in to make a whole long list, Deb.

    I have a lengthy decadence list for when I crave sugar :) but a shinybright list? dont have. so need.

  2. This is a wonderful list, Deb…and it’s making me think about mine. I’m going to make it tonight, I think. That’ll be a good, quiet activity to use to settle myself down after a long day…

  3. Hey! You have Firefly, but not Buffy? I don’t think we can be friends anymore. (And because tone of voice doesn’t carry over the internet, I shall clarify: I AM TOTALLY KIDDING. Well, not about Buffy. But about not being friends. ;D)

    There used to be a book in print called “1001 things to be happy about,” and I bought it because I was young and cynical and thought it was HILARIOUSLY IRONIC. But. Um. Now I read it sometimes. Without any irony. If I need a pick-me-up. LOL, it turned out to be one of the best things I ever bought, and I only bought because I thought it was stupid at the time! Now THAT’S irony. But it’s like this post: a 2- or 3-inch thick book, that’s nothing more than a bulleted list. It’s AWESOME.

  4. checking in on you.
    anything new and exciting in the WOD (world of deb :)) NADA here…
