Simple Pleasures

A pleasure seeker might most often be thought of as a lover of the finer things in life. That is, the ones we have all come to accept as finer; wine, chocolate, single malt scotch, cashmere, sandy beaches lapped by warm seas and exotic travel of any kind really are a few that come to mind. I’m sure no one wants to raise a serious objection to any of those pleasures, but in their pursuit we sometimes forget about the simpler things that can bring as much or more satisfaction.

For example, as I write, my beloved is strumming “Landslide” on a guitar, my pup is sunbathing on boulder in the yard, a lunch of soba noodles is bubbling up on the stove in a beautiful blue non-toxic pot from Le Creuset, the fresh sweet smell of tea tree and geranium is emanating from the bathroom I just freshened and keeping my mind relaxed and sharp, and an ever-growing flock of birds is clearing my yard of the influx of baby spiders spring has brought us.

Basically what I’m saying is that this moment gives me immense pleasure. The life I am co-creator of with my family gives me immense pleasure. The people and creatures I love are the greatest pleasure I know. Well, them and a fine lump of dark chocolate!
