1- The use of my hands. I had an accident a few years back and had
to undergo three surgeries over a couple of years to regain full
dexterity. Just having to face the possibility of not playing the
piano, guitar, saxaphone, etc. ever again was almost enough to
break me ... Oh ... and my guitar to use them with!
2- My friends and family (no explanation needed ... it's trite but
3- Medium rare cuts of prime rib with twice baked potatoes, sautéed
mushrooms and a glass of delicious Shiraz. (yeah I'm counting that
as one so what, lol)
4- Big cities and the restaurants, art, music, diversity, and noise
that comes with them.
5- Small towns and the cottages, lakes, rocks, boating, noises and
memories that come with them.
6- Strangers and their surprising and incredible ability to vanish
into important parts of our lives.
