Little moments

Taking a moment to remember all the little things that lift my spirit:

1. Charlotte the Cat, who for reasons all her own believes it is her sworn feline duty to sit on the toilet seat and help me apply moisturizer. I think I can do this without being under her watchful gaze, but she disagrees and is always there when I "need" her. It's very sweet.

2. Quick little emails from my best friend. Mostly about Halloween. Nothing earthshattering. But it's important to feel connected, and sometimes it's sharing the stuff of everyday life that bonds us together.

3. Peapod. My week's groceries are going to be delivered between 7:00 and 9:00 this evening. Is this a great country of what?

4. Sir Paul. Right now I'm listening to "She's A Woman." Listening to him has been good for what ails me for 45 years now.

I need to appreciate these tiny day-to-day jabs of pleasure more when I experience them.
