Being in or on the water - ocean, river, lake. Saturday mornings that involve chicory coffee, bacon and listening to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. Dive bars with great jukeboxes. Sitting by a campfire. The night sky in the Sierras. A nap in the hammock under the pretense of listening to a Giants game. A well-crafted manhattan. Good design.
