The Good Life

This is is, friends. Drinking gin on the back porch with friends on a Saturday evening, making bread almost every day, watching flowers open up and then fade. Drinking a cup of tea or two in the morning. 

I consider myself lucky, but I also work hard at making the little things count. I make sure to smile at people and say 'have a good day' even when I'm tired and I would rather stay quiet. I make sure I'm not curt or impatient with people. And at the end of a long day, I reward myself with a nice slice of homemade bread, or a chilled glass of white wine and I savor it. It seems to be something I'm becoming better at, this savoring things. I think I owe it to photography. I notice things more these days, and spend more time just observing and being present. It's funny, I used to think that this phrase, being present, was ridiculous. Not just the phrase but the whole concept. Not anymore. Now it's something that I do because it makes me happier.
