Beautiful Things

Last night we watched Greenaway’s The Pillow Book (again). What a sensuous and evocative film! It inspired me to create my own list of Beautiful Things:

  • Rain falling on a tin roof.
  • Bright orange fish in a lucid green pond.
  • Roosters crowing at dusk.
  • Finding something unexpected in a pocket.
  • Sleeping in a very cold room.
  • Walking barefoot on damp moss.
  • Being awake while others sleep.
  • Ice cold water in the searing heat.
  • Boxes, in all shapes and sizes.
  • Seeing a penny, face-side up.
  • Strolling an ancient city after midnight.
  • Wind whistling through a window on a stormy day.
  • Dark bitter chocolate with sweet red fruit.
