Okay, my friend Julie has issued a challenge to find five things of beauty every day, to enhance your creativity and inner life. I like her idea of looking for one for each sense, so I'm stealing . . . er . . . emulating her here (how's THAT for a five dollar word!)
Taste: I had a wonderful Asian chicken salad for lunch, with oranges, chicken, almonds, cucumbers, and sesame dressing. A delightul combo of sweet and salty, with crunch to boot.
Smell: My freshly laundered sheets that still smelled great this morning before I got up. Fresh laundry is my very favorite smell.
Touch: My beautiful granddaughter's arms around my neck this morning, giving me a sweet sloppy kiss.
Sound: The hilarious sound effects Sam (4 year old grandson) was making from the back seat as I took him to school. The turn signal, the motor sounds as he said it felt like we were on a roller coaster (a twisty road actually), and so on.
Sight: The faces of my grandchildren as they wrestled and played, giggling and smiling at each other.
Sorry, I guess there was a grandchild theme here, but I saw them this morning and it was of course the highlight of my day.
Anyone else care to play?
