Good Things on Sunday

Good things I’ve noticed this week:

  • Gatsby Ice-type body deodorant sheets. They are fantastic and I love them to bits.
  • cold showers
  • pigeons flying alongside the car
  • crows taking baths in the waterfilled wheelbarrow across the way
  • moving towards completion of a long-term project that I never thought I’d actually finish
  • salty vanilla chocolates
  • misty mornings with thousand-year-old trees

What good things have you experienced this week?

Good Things on Sunday

A new thing I’m gonna try doing is, all week, making a brief note of good things that I noticed, that happened to me, that I thought of, etc., and post them all here. A wee “it wasn’t all shit” post at the end of the week. So, without further ado:

  • When driving, a truck passes, and there’s a dramatic gust of wind through the open window, loud too, which synchs perfectly with the dramatic climax of the song you’re listening to.
  • Also when driving, when flight after flight of dragonfly approaches your car, wave after wave of them, matching with the nostalgic fade-out on the song you’re listening to.
  • Seeing a doctor who acknowledges that your illness is an illness, and not just a side effect of something else. Also when he can speak a little bit of English, which aids communication both ways.
  • Being able to feel sad, both for oneself and others. It’s good to have a degree of empathy.
  • David Tennant as Hamlet
  • feeling comfortable in one’s own clothes
  • ferns
  • manufactured boy bands
  • legs that feel like legs and not like heavy lumps of horrible melty flesh (this will only last as long as this cool spell does, but I’ll take what I can get)
