Everyone's doing this over on LJ. How could I pick only 5?
1. Very Hot baths with lots of different soaps, lotions, scrubs.
2. A pile of books all tangentially related, open or with a ton of bookmarks stuck in, spread out all around me.
3. New blank notebooks.
4. Stinky cheese.
5. Seeing my kid thinking, making, figuring-out.
6. Good massages that go on forever.
7. The moment of certainty where I know something is fantastic (whether I've written it, or someone else)
8. Long underwear.
9. Being "in flow".
10. Estate sales, cheap, of interesting dead people.
