The things that bring me the most joy in life are the things that most people take for granted or are too busy to stop and look around at the world and bring in the smells, sounds, sights and feelings that I sense every day. I surround myself with these things. It may be as simple as the way my cat's fur feels or how the low rumble of a purr reaches into my soul. A picture I look at my bring back a distant memory of a better time or a song that hits me right in my heart. A kiss from the one I love is enough to remind me there is much, much more to life.
