I am excited. There are so many things to look forward to in the next few months--a day of mushroom picking with the Sandbergs, visiting my brother and his wife in their new flat--and bringing gifts!, getting my Cobra Kai on at the dojo, interviewing my father for his book, writing in coffee shops, reading in windows during rainy autumn days, sanding down desks, painting kitchens, and staining the deck outside my uncle's new store. And that is still neglecting the days I will spend baking or making jam or tramping through misty woods or sealing letters with wax or folding clean laundry or reciting Shakespeare to myself in the bathroom mirror.

Blessed is he who loves the little things in life.
