The Simple Things

Things that make us who we are

 
 
There are a lot of things that we 
all love in life which are the little things which bring us joy as we all look at the world through different coloured glasses
I heard somewhere that writing down the things that you love and describe how they make you feel helps to expand your horizons so I thought being a sucker for punishment I'd give it a whirl.
 
 
I love autumn and the colour of the golden leaves falling like confetti all around me
 
I love gazing into the night skies how the satellites and stars glisten and twinkle under the moonlight
 
Watching my favourite movies brings a certain familiar contentment like making you daydream of a magical place when you were a child
 
I love the warmth of an open fire 
crackling and watching the flames dancing with a certain romance 
 
The smell of coconut it drives my senses to a paradise of hidden wonders
 
The sensation of a hot shower after being caught in the rain as it hits your skin with pleasure
 
The fluffiness of clean blankets and fresh washing as you smell it's fragrance permeate the room
 
I love the smokey aroma of a summers bbq sizzling with a heavenly taste as you dream of a peppered steak or a beef sausage smeared with mustard and sauce 
 
The way a winters jacket hugs your body so snugly like a lovers arms embracing you
 
Thinking of old memories as they fill you up with a warm homely sensation of old times , good times , hard times of people past and present as a cheeky smile runs across your face of 
a sweet sadness
 
A coffee brewing in the morning as it awakens your senses with it's rallying of your energy
 
The first taste of a corn chip in a salsa dip as it smirches with your senses savouring and feeling the flavour erupt in your mouth 
 
A favourite song how it hits your ears with its sweet melody and electrifying your soul making it dance and sway to its rhythm 
 
Coming home and your pet greeting you with affection and an unconditional love as you cuddle them with smooches 
 
On a summers day hitting the interstate with that cool breeze caressing your face and dancing in your hair 
 
The feeling of a warm bath as it engulfs your body and surrounds you like a blanket 
 
The first mouthful of a chocolate caramel fudge sundae how it oozes around my taste buds drizzling it's self indulging joy through me
 
A moment when a beautiful stranger steals the words from your mouth and breathes a seductiveness into your heart
 
The breathtaking wonders of nature as it enthrals your senses and ignites fireworks for your eyes 
 
The tomfoolery of a well timed joke that overwhelms your body with a rapturous giggle  
 
Nothing holds a candle to the creamy taste of an ice cream that enriches it's sweetness around your tongue and stimulates the soul of your very existence 
 
The pursuit of an extreme sport as the adrenalin rush overtakes your body like a possessed force out of control
 
Watching a western as it gun slings my passion for this time worn genre leading me like a wagon trial into the lone prairies 
 
Reminiscing through old photos of moments lived through time with emotions crashing over me like an oceans tides hitting the rocks 
 
Home made coconut rough how it pours through the ages of my childhood and mixes delight and wonder sliced into scrumptious pieces  
 
The smell of hay and silage how it lingers in the stillness of a summers afternoon as the fireflies dance in the fields 
 
 
 
These are just some of the few things that make my journey in life that much more pleasurable.
Feel free to add...!!!!

    The taste of a fresh peach as it floods your mouth with sweet juice and makes you feel like a child, stealing a peach from your neighbor’s tree – the stolen ones always tasted the best.
