On this rainy Thursday, let’s talk about something fun. Artist Moose Allain was feeling out of sorts, so he decided to write a list of small joys on Twitter. A few were “a lovely little puppy” and “the smell of snow” and “finding finally the lost thing.”

Other people then piped up and theirs included “sourdough bread, toasted, with cinnamon sugar,” “lining up groceries very neatly at the checkout” and “pushing the pram over bumpy bits of pavement to make my daughter’s chubby cheeks wobble.” How cute are those?

A few of mine are:
Kissing my children on the side of their mouths
Jacket potatoes
Getting into clean sheets after shaving my legs
The grassy waves at Storm King
The word “peripatetic” because it’s fun to say
Cheeses described as “barnyardy”
A room with a view
When you read something so beautiful, you put your hand on your heart
Magic tricks that are impossible to figure out
Anton’s cowlick
Kettle chips

What would yours be? I’d really love to hear. Also, baby belly laughs!

P.S. How to stay present, and what’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever read?
