1. volunteering at an arts festival for special ed kids. The kids are sweet & having fun, and just delightful. They range from profoundly disabled to garden variety LD. Also, it leaves me thankful that there are other people who can devote their lives to teaching & taking care of them, because I do not have the acres of patience and niceness necessary.
2. *fresh* sweet corn. boiled for a minute and a half, butter and salt.
3. Good live music. Wilco, for example.
4. All things pink and sparkly. Purple is good too.
