People I Have Been Before

I've been coming back on people I have been before, and things I've loved and somehow lost sight of—surprised and pleased to find them there, still waiting for me, after all these years.
·      the ocean, walking there, watching seabirds, eating grilled fish on a terrace
·      the baby pigs at Rancho San Antonio, the hidden grotto on the river in the trees
·      croquet
·      little sailboats thrilled with wind
·      library books
·      drawing with fine-tipped pens
·      turtles
·      chalcedony and malechite and quartz crystals
·      Inspector Clouseau
·      tiny overripe raspberries
·      Jackson Browne
·      coffee with milk
·      Nabokov
·      wasabi, wabi sabi, zabaglione
·      wordplay
·      Marguerite Duras
·      barbecued oysters
·      Sempe
·      The Owl and the Pussycat
