Coming in a close second: words, good pens, running out in the middle of nowhere, wistful girls in blue dresses, the changing of the seasons, Japanese noodle shops, candy, beetles, mantids, and cups of hot chocolate.
But as it happens, love is the winner.
I have several outlets which I find particularly absorbing...most are alluded to above, but one in particular is to draw. Drawing and coloring. It calms me down: the unfolding of lines, how they bend and join in simple ways, how color seeps into a page.
Would you like such a bookmark? I give them to friends, to my girls, to Caroline's teacher when I need to write a note of excuse...if you would like one, please leave a comment below. Depending on how many comments I receive, I may forgo picking a winner and finally fulfill my fantasy of having everyone win a giveaway.
With that in mind, I may not leave comments open for long. So if you're debating the merits of being stared at by some unruly rabbits and their friends, I say go for it.
