Things That Make Me Perfectly Happy

  • a merino sweater the purple of the pigment violet
  • warm pain au chocolat
  • a branch of lilacs
  • melon oolong tea
  • walking by the water
  • sitting by the water
  • looking at the names of boats*
  • a little black pug dog
  • remembering Hadrian’s Wall
  • seeing and not having to respond to office e-mail
  • a new easy Indian cookbook
  • pretending perfect detachment
  • pelicans
  • seeing the quails come up the driveway
  • window gardens
  • little green watering cans
  • roasted cauliflower
  • the title “Overheard in an Old Graveyard
  • a sunny window 

*my favorite fishing boat still “For Tuna”
