- Humidity. Having long been reconciled with the curls, I embrace a swampy atmosphere for what it does for my hair. Bonus: lip-balms and moisturizers last for ages.
- Rosemary. It's tasty, it smells amazing to me, and while Ophelia said it, modern science confirms that this is an herb for remembrance.
- Widespread vaccination. I appreciate having hopscotched though childhood without fear of polio and smallpox, and being only glancingly affected by the measles, the mumps, and chicken pox.
- My sweet spouse for ordering my special, high-maintenance, fussy-pants, can't-eat-that-or-that version of pizza after I was recently over-served adult bevvies. Saved my life, babe. Thanks.
- Modern roads and DOT signs. It seems lowly enough, but go drive where signage is missing or where cities are spelled in an unfamiliar alphabet and tell me how it went for you.
Another entry in the series of stopping and reflecting on what's wonderful in my corner of the world.
