The Littlest Things

There are so many things in life that we like, and we make sure everyone around us knows we do; but there's probably even more that we never mention. Sometime we don't even notice them ourselves, but it's those tiny details that make us smile during the day, at random times, they can even cheer us up when we're down or awake something inside of us. They can be things you see, smell, hear, taste, feel, or even imagine.

As for myself, I love...

The smell of mud, especially in the forest, combined with the scent of pine trees.

Typing on a macbook, with those lovely flat keys, even more if they're white.

When someone rubs my back gently, or (a little more intimate) traces my chin with the tip of his finger... or rubs my earlobe slowly.

That weird sensation on the sides of the inside of your mouth just before you eat something very tasty.

Looking at airplanes flying really close to the ground, and the sound they make as they fade away.

Picturing how some people would look if they were completely bald.

The sound of Patrick's laughter.

Moving my legs beneath my sheets to make them feel fresh.

And I could keep on going, but maybe I wanna save some for later... Not like I'd ever run out of them but oh well. What about you? You probably have some things like these you'd like to share... and I'd like to know.

    Thanks for sharing this with me.. even if you do it unconsciously :)

  2. You can still write something like it... hence my last two sentences.

  3. sabes que?
