earthly delights

Are you getting your daily quota of earthly delights? They don't have to be extravagant or extraordinary, just everyday things mindfully enjoyed. Clementines, a butterfly sighting, figs drizzled with honey, the color orange, a favorite chair, a homemade scone warm from the oven. Life can be awfully barren if you don't fill it with special people, flavors, flowers and art (even if it's just a museum postcard!). Once when we were waiting on hospital news, my friend Liza fixed us really good coffee and served it in gorgeous china cups and saucers. "We need a treat," she said. Her words still make me smile.
