I must confess that the photos in the post are not in chronological order. The last two were taken earlier in the day while Grant and I were out at the Tuesday farmer's market in Bixby Park and the others were taken en route to dinner in Belmont Shore (Sushi on Fire--SO GOOD!). Note the two different pairs of sunglasses I'm wearing ;-) I always have like 2-3 pairs of glasses in my bag.
The other night me and some girlfriends were discussing specific sensations and how they can be such amazing, simple pleasures, like that scene in Amelie where she talks about cracking the top of a creme brulee or sticking her hand in a bushel of beans.
Here are a few that we thought of...
Peeling off stickers/ protective film on electronics and appliances (Mine! I love doing this)
Sharpening a pencil with a hand held pencil sharpener and creating one long continuous shaving
Flipping your pillow on a hot night and sinking your face into the cool, underside
Skimming your hand on top of a pool of water
Being all bundled, warm, and cozy in bed but feeling the nip of cold on your face
When a song gives you goosebumps
Erasing a whiteboard until there is not one speck of dry erase marker left (conversely, this reminds me of being in high school and watching a teacher "erase" a whiteboard only to have there still be streaks and specs of marker left. AGHH! It took all my strength not to get up and erase the marks left over)
When you're driving at night and you hit nothing but green lights
When you're driving on the freeway, check your rearview mirror, and see NO CARS behind you at all. Almost like you're the last car on the freeway for the day
Being able to parallel park in one, swift go (This one is Grant's. Frankly, I can't think of anything worse than parallel parking!)
Cutting open an avocado to reveal, perfect light green flesh
...and many more! Have any you want to add? I need to start writing these down, they're nice to think about :)
