day 250 || things that make me happy
a morning phone conversation with her, a long, long walk with the dog, bunnies and evergreen trees, how his nose works better than his eyes, hot tea weather, honey crisp apples, meeting a young man with his dog on the trial today who had dyed part of his dog's fur purple (he assured me he has used safe dye), walking sticks, a few signs of fall, take a penny trays at stores, the first day of school and afternoon patches of sun.
“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
