sunny days in short green grass. little ducklings amongst the tall reeds. short stories. tall tales. jameson whiskey. dancing in new york. singing songs. sunglasses. groups of people. kissing on escalators in the tube. sandwiches for lunch. wearing wellingtons in the mud. copper eyeliner. music from unknown sources. walking horses out to the fields. russian rooftop parties. the rocks in southern france. the sun shining in the window in the morning. petting the local dogs. flat shoes for walking. high heels for sex appeal. sleeping in. lazy days on the beach in cyprus. scrabble. fires. small kitchens. distant hills covered with gorse. lines of hedgerows. riding on the top of the bus. the ukrainian countryside. ice cream sandwiches. walking by the liffey. sweaters when it's chilly. stacks of books. my family.paris in the winter. the thanksgiving walk. big weddings. clean cotton sheets. fishnet stockings. exotic cats. the smell of honeysuckle at the end of the lane. cups of tea on the welsh coast. hugs.
