@jespah,
Oddly, I notice a headache when it arrives, and while it is there. I have yet to note one's passage.

A maple tree at the entrance to our "technology park" was a riot of
red and orange this morning. Autumn in New England.

Same here, except once when my manager was transferred.

I've always maintained that everything is relative. Some people's idea of small is a lot bigger than mine. Seasons, suns, nature. Big stuff to me. The cool spot on the pillow. Small.

@George,
Watching the first brilliant lime green leaves emerge in spring time.

The beauty of gardens, the blossom, brilliance in colours, shapes and sizes.

Watching 8 little ducklings finally take to the water with their Mother.

Being entertained by Bigsy (the cat) who somehow manages to hide in a wooley brush tree that really has no branches of substance and stare at us.

Having a glass of wine, sitting on the deck over looking the sea, watching the children frolic in the waves.

Walking bare foot on the sand, collecting shells.

Getting a smile and a kiss of the fore-head, for no reason.

Listening to Thunder, watching lightening.

The touch of snowflakes.

Driving in spring with the roof top down

Putting on a girly floral dress and lipstick

Listening to my Husky howl, interperating the words I love you

Hearing those three words " I love you"

Doing a good deed and crossing your fingers it helped

Soaking in a bath with bubbles with a glass of wine

The smell of a wood fire

Visiting old Country Towns , seeing historic buildings

Walking around an Art Gallery

Taking my bra off and finally being free
(Why again do we have to wear them? ) Oh, that's right.

Having a fun & interesting conversation with my 14 year old going on 21

The aroma of freshly baked foods

Presenting a great meal that tastes good and looks good

Watching my cat throw the pretent mouse up in the air

Walking away from this computer and curling up with a good book

Lighting a room full of candles when it's dark

Calling your parents, knowing that you made their day

Living here in the tropics now, the only time I really and truly miss New England is in September and October. Miss it terribly, too.

@Lustig Andrei,
Ironically, we're off to Florida next week.

I was on my way back from the hospital. I was looking out the window. I see an ad on a bus stop. It's for men's underwear. The model was shall we say attractive. Holy moley. Shocked

In the light of eternity, a very small thing. In the light of Roberta, tres fine.

@Roberta,
1a. Getting a very popular new DVD several weeks ahead then expected from the NYPL;
1b. Being allowed to renew a popular library DVD that one never actually got around to watching;

2. Roommate/best friend unexpectedly bakes a pizza with homemade dough;

3. Finding out that one has enough quarters for the laundry machine and dryer;

4. Opening the mailbox after a day of work and finding a favorite magazine waiting inside: NY Magazine; Time Out NY; or Automobile Magazine;

5. Walking by the movie theater on a Friday after work and then on the whim dropping in to see a movie opening on that weekend;

I was thinking about this thread this morning when I wrote this, such a small pleasure when a stubborn knot lets go.

@Roberta,
I know what you mean, though. I was born in New York, but raised in the country. I need to see trees and green stuff every day to stay happy. The other evening, i was out walking the little dogs, and saw the crescent moon heading down the sky to the west. There were streaks of cloud rushing past it. It really set up my evening.

Morning commute traffic flowing smoothly through the
I-93 - Rt 128 interchange (AKA Malfunction Junction).

You made that up, George. That's an impossibility.
