I love gentle things like having tea and sweets at midday, listening to melodic nature music, walking barefoot in the forest, cooking good food for loved ones, reading, falling asleep to the rain, walking through the misty dewy grass in the morning, waking up to bird songs, burning sweet candles, making friends with animals, picking wild berries in the summer, gardening, whistling back to the birds, running through fields of flowers, laying in the cold grass to watch the sunset, doing something sweet for a loved one, turning essential oils into bug repellant that also makes you smell like you are a part of nature, laying under a tree on a hot day and looking up at how the sun shines through the leaves, listening to bees buzz from flower to flower, and snuggling with a dog or cat.
Animation of: ‘Starry Night’ by Alex Ruiz Ruiz wanted to capture what it might have been like on that starry night. Van Gogh (the figure in the painting) is seen “looking up at the night sky…probably in awe, as he wondered how he would capture the beauty he saw.”
Apple pies, heavy rain against the window. Thunderstorms; the smell of freshly baked cookies. Christmas lights. The sea; the sound of waves. Warm spring days and golden days in autumn. Coffeeshops. Good books and good movies. Scented candles. Smiles from strangers. Animals. car rides. Turning up the music, and tuning out the world. Tea. Flowers. Stars, and space. The moon. Her messages. Her smile. Her laugh.
you make it onto all the lists of things that make me happy.
