What does pleasure mean to me? Where do I find it?
Pleasure is what makes me smile....what gives me pause. It can be long and drawn out or it can appear and disappear in a split second.
Where can it be found?
Here's my simple 5:45am list....care to share yours?
-The first cup of coffee...hazelnut...enjoyed in the dark of the early morning serenaded by the dawn chours.
-The gentle touch of a skilled and caring massage therapist...90 minutes worth!
-The rub of a soft, slightly damp nose of my cat as she tries to wake me.
-An early morning Skype conversation with a faraway friend who offers inspiration without even knowing it.
-The full Harvest Moon...did anyone else catch a glimpse of that glowing orb?
-Bringing a smile and a bit of cheer to another....even when I'm not quite feeling cheerful.
-Being able to complete a gentle Sun Salutation.
-Honeybees and the smell of clover.
-Homemade fresh Gazpacho...grab a spoon and let's dig in!
It's good to step back and make a list like this when pleasure seems like a distant memory.
Moment by moment.
