Life's Little Pleasures

Drink freshly steeped Jade Oolong tea (even though you typically prefer the black varieties). Forget your umbrella, compact mirror, smartphone. Take your canine friend on a walk to an aspen grove.

Self-taken mobile shots? Oops, I didn't forget that phone!

Pick daisies. 

Watch a little black panther-of-a-cat hunt a ringed plover. 

Go on a solitary walk into the lilac sunset.

Get approached by one of the creepiest characters you've ever met (and you've met a few--you've lived in large cities!). Have your heart sink into your stomach, "I kinda wish this walk weren't solitary!".

I should really stop telling people that I live in Twin Peaks!
