“Life is mostly the stuff of the not so fantastic but very comfortable. It smells something like popcorn cooking in the microwave after the kids are asleep, or the christmas tree when it is first setup, or a fire in the fireplace on a cold night. It looks something like a smile on a face that has chocolate frosting stuck in the dimples, or a frown after a friend is not too much of a friend, or the first snow before we begin to dread the stuff. It feels something like a sunday nap, or wet socks after taking the garbage out with no shoes on, or the joy of an answered prayer.” – Randall Baker, Christmas Letter Circa 1998
My dad is right, blogging about the simple things [music, food, little thoughts, friends] seems to be replicating life much more accurately.
