These are a Few of My Favorite Things

I couldn’t think of what to write today because I have so many other writing projects to work on, so I decided to make a list of my favorite things. Here they are in no particular order:

  • a cup of good coffee with a couple of shots of espresso, some cream, and some honey
  • a nice sweet clove cigarette
  • Guinness, Bells Porter or Avery Porter or Bob Nowatzki’s Porter, Dogfish Head Punkin Spice Ale or any of their other beers, almost any IPA, Arrogant Bastard Ale or any of Stone’s other beers, mostly beer
  • softly falling snow that doesn’t stick
  • Christmas lights on other people’s homes
  • bread, never met one I didn’t like
  • peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwiches
  • sweet tea, Coca Cola, and all drinks Southern (Hurricanes, Mint Juleps, etc.)
  • ice cream, especially Mint Chocolate Chip, Mandarin Orange Sherbet, and Blue Moon
  • family and friends
  • the Bible
  • writing by Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Gloria Naylor, Kate Chopin, bell hooks, Louise Erdrich, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Judith Butler, Joy Harjo, Lyn Hejinian, James Wright, Edgar Allen Poe, Stephen Crane, Thomas Hardy, Allen Ginsberg (this list develops still)
  • music by The Doors, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, David Crowder, Matt Redman, Mozart, System of a Down, Ani Difranco, The Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge (this list is in progress as well)
  • foods from these cultures: Greek, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Cajun/Creole
  • sleeping a dreamless sleep, sleeping in, snuggling

I need to actually work on my other writing now. This little trip down my favorite lane has been fun.
