This morning on the walk to school, my youngest was providing me with a list of things that make her feel happy. When our dog curls up exactly in the middle of his pillow, watching someone throw a pot on a wheel, when the condiments in the fridge door happen to line up according to height... The list goes on, but each of her ideas came at me as a small sparkling epiphany. I feel joy for those mundane and random bits of eye candy too! I love staring at rows of things. I love collections and patterns. Order in the chaos, math out of madness, an over developed sense of aesthetics, call it what you will, I love sharing tendencies with my children.
