  1. That is a perfect list but for two-I have never recited a beautiful poem and I do not play the piano- but I enjoy both when someone else does.

  2. Hi Susan! I really enjoyed this list of simple pleasures! πŸ™‚ Made me smile just reading it. Hmm, I might just make my own simple list of pleasures too! πŸ™‚

    Also, thank you so much for visiting my Origami Lotus Stones blog (small stones blog). πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you enjoyed my poem, “Becoming a Rabbit.” I do agree in that it will be fun to see what else the rabbit does and feels. πŸ™‚ Thank you for the idea!
