Moving through the years, one accumulates a wealth of things. Some of these ‘things’ are material and many, many more are ephemeral wonders that bring a simple and bright joy. I got thinking about what are my newest favorite things and in no particular order, here are some of them:
The single green-yellow butterfly in the garden outside
Intense blue Pune spring and summer skies
The curtains of bougainvillea lining the main road
Brandy snap biscuits from the Cookie Man stalls
The miniature Van Gogh print on one of my bookshelves
Sketching and my new sketching pencils
Tart and tasty strawberry jam from Green Tokri that cures all ills
Guilty pleasure: Red Velvet pastries and cupcakes with delicious cream cheese filling from Moshe’s at Crossword, Aundh
Tea Tree Oil – amazing for skin ailments
The scent of lavender
Trying the Headspace meditation introduction course in quiet, luminous afternoons
Slowly getting my words and rhythms back
My new sunburst yellow kurta
The joys of planning a book out
The pain of actually sitting down to write it
Re-reading, re-discovering Terry Pratchett
P.B. Shelly Poems
The incredible and incredibly talented WordPress Blogging Community that inspires me so!
Being calm, gentle and open
Letting go of anger, and learning to be vulnerable again
My shaggy pink stuffed-toy mascot…
What are some of your favorite things?
