Some call it a Gratitude List. I’m calling it the Good List. Those things which are pleasing at the beginning or end of my day.
2. Pandora on the iPad. Call it music on the move or portable music or music wherever you are, the iPad seriously rocks. And Pandora isn’t far behind!
3. Herbs. Herbal teas. Herbal supplements. Herbal concoctions. Herbs to bring balance. Herbs to cleanse, to fix what ails, to restore and return harmony that’s missing. My affinity with herbs is no small matter. I can easily imagine being an herbalist in another lifetime!
4. The sun. Colorado sunshine. Oh what a difference is a world with sun compared to one without! The dreary gray cold damp Pacific Northwest. Not gonna go there, not now, figuratively, or again (literally). What a rotten miserable place for a body that needs warmth and, well, sun! So yeah, sun remains consistently high on the Good List.
5. A residence absent the roommate. Having the place — and space — to myself is a really really good thing. Really good. In fact, our shared cohabitation functions best with minimal interaction. Best is me here and roommate back with his girlfriend, which seems to be the case. Let’s hope it continues.
