That last post got me thinking about my other nine reasons it's great to be alive. Here is my current list:
  1. Les Miserables - 1,000 specific things about it
  2. Surfing. Natch.
  3. Hearing or reading words that perfectly describe something I am thinking or feeling
  4. Sun on my skin
  5. Books. Delicious books.
  6. The absolute perfect song at the absolute perfect time
  7. Feet pounding on pavement, fresh air in lungs, moving forward, always forward
  8. Being thought of, being comforted, being held by just the right person
  9. That feeling when I'm in bed and I wake up in the morning after a great sleep and I'm the perfect temperature and the covers are just right around me and I am totally comfy
  10. Getting nuzzled by my furry little pet - they're our true companions, aren't they?
Now that I've gotten started, I feel like I could come up with 100 more. I guess that makes me very lucky, doesn't it?


  1. I smell a bit of Al-Anon in this post. In a very, very good way.

  2. Once we start listing what we're grateful for, it multiplies! It's pretty awesome that way.

  3. I'm going to go ahead and add "Noho's" to your list and I should like to hear some tales of Costa Rica over lunch there in a few weeks.

  4. Yeah, so, what's new? Long time, no see. or, whatever.
