Not lost, sparrow and chilli.

My cousin Amy dropped me a line to say:
I was on a trip with uni to the design museum and while we were all waiting outside there were three or four teenage guys with skateboards taking it in turns to skate along a bench and jump off the end. Watching them were two little girls of about three or four who were jumping up and down and squealing with excitement every time one of the skaters jumped! Our tutor commented that it was good to have a fan base!

1. While tidying, I find a box of books that never got unpacked. It contains a number of treasures that I thought I'd lost, and I feel very pleased.

2. A sparrow picks at something invisible between the paving stones.

3. Almost the last thing I am aware of before I fall asleep is the faint burning in the lines of my fingertips from the chilli I cut up for supper.


  1. Oh, the unmitigated joy of unpacking a box of books you've not seen for a long time! It's like welcoming back old friends.

  2. What treasures we find unexpectedly! I'm happy for you!

  3. Just watch where you're putting your hands...

  4. This is a wonderful thing for all of us to do. Just 3 things can brighten ones day, most folks look for all the negative things. Great blog.

  5. I've just discovered your blog today. I love the concept. I'm just starting a blog myself to help me work through my experinece. Since I'm struggling with depression and learning to find things in life to enjoy I look forward to following your blog. I bet it will be a good experience for me.
