Happiness and gratitudes

• listening to excellent F Word podcasts while I'm baking or making my lunch.

• making it to an exam just on time despite two wrong turns.

• imagining having in-person radfem friends someday.

• Indian summer (i.e. our only summer), brief but divine.

• Ocean Beach with strange wave patterns and feathers in the water.

• my coworkers.

• cheap thrifted sundresses.

• how alive I feel when I'm driving fast on the freeway with loud music. electrified, or flying, or my own bioluminescent.

• pictures and videos of kelp forests (e.g.).

• daydreams of being in unfamiliar places. I've been thinking about moving to New Mexico for part of next year.

• writing letters in which I spill all my intellectual preoccupations.

• waking up at dawn one morning and moving my comforter and pillows out to the backyard to have the rest of my night's sleep on the hammock.

• the boy who always rings me up at the photo lab, because how often do you meet a truly jovial hipster?

Those letters, and writing such, sounds glorious.

Stephanie's gratitude:

*how alive I feel when I'm riding fast on the freeway in a blue station wagon in San Fran with holly's awesome driving and loud "American indie" music gazing over the mist on the hills. electrified, or flying, or my own bioluminescent...

Jenica - And gratitude for the right people to send such letters to! Do you have one, or some?

red-handed - Who knew I was capable of good ideas in the MORNING?

odessa - YES! Haha, he's our new mochi boy.

aipingplum - I am really glad that you were able to come along in that and come along inside that mood. Driving is my guilty pleasure and my fail-safe euphoria...
