happiness is...

A cool photo (from Erin Abbott Kirkpatrick...check out her stuff at her shop Amelia in Oxford!).

Life leading you back to a long lost true friend who remembers a better and more inspired me...and inspires me to be that person again.

Hearing a word used in casual commentary that you didn't expect and that shakes it up a little (in this case, the strings of a destroyed guitar being described as akimbo).

A new album that makes me feel dreamy (Bon Iver by Bon Iver), and a rediscovered artist seen in an entirely new way (Ray LaMontagne).

Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup on a hot June night...and a friend who gets it and craves it the same way I do.

Knowing, in spite of frustration and occasional ingratitude, that I am good at my job.

A niece insisting that her grandfather call me back because she didn't get to tell me goodbye and that she loves me.

A cold beer on the balcony at City Grocery, and the blessing that the thought it inspires ("I can't believe I LIVE here...") is actually a pretty common one for me to have.

High thread count sheets and a late wake-up time.
