“Hard work followed by relaxation. A cool drink. A well-written sentence. An original insight about something you’ve seen a thousand times. A call from an old friend. The sound of a loved but forgotten song. The sky at morning and evening. A good dictionary. … The precision of French. The bubbling of Spanish. …Pumpkin pie. The beast-like growl of a Harley…”
The full list, here.
I can agree with much of the list. What would I add to mine:
- the bark of a Stratocaster just over-driving a Fender valve amp
- a glass of peppery, spicy, vanilla old rioja
- the wind in the trees
- dinner with good friends
- shooting stars.
