Things I Like

flipflops

Sound
of flip-flops at work

Appreciating
the finer things

That my
sons don’t like wearing socks

An old
bathing suit

People
who cook with old iron skillets

Cold
fruit on a hot day

Puffy clouds and a blue
sky
A breeze out of the east in the summer
The tranquility of Ayres Creek

Smell
of a pencil after its sharpened

Driving
away from the car wash
