Scott Douglas’ Terse Bloviation

Little Hits o’ Pleasure

I’m in one of those stages with no big projects or adventures or cool trips to look forward to, so I need to remind myself to not forget quotidian items that reliably pierce the clouds. Ten off the top of my head:

  1. Solo trail runs.
  2. Trail runs with friends.
  3. First 83 cups of coffee in the morning.
  4. Dinner with Stacey.
  5. Harold Mabern at full force.
  6. For some reason, merino wool tops make me very happy.
  7. A good chai is nice.
  8. Interesting e-mail exchanges.
  9. Perusing Slate.
  10. At some point during the day, each of the pets does something that makes me smile.

Your list?
