What are some of your favorite, simple things or simple, enjoyable moments?

It's unusually warm here this morning, and I spent an hour on the back porch, at dawn, listening to the birds and watching them come into the feeder with Buddy. He was sitting on the futon next to me, and one of my arms was around him and I had a good coffee in the other.

We just sat and watched quietly.

I think it's the most peaceful hour I've had in months.

That sounds awesome, Mark.

Some of the best times in life are when we slow everything down and take the time to notice it.

YOU BET! That kind of stuff is what makes you a rich man. Just a guess, but I suspect it would not have been quite as special without the presence and physical contact with Buddy. Tactile communication is a very powerful thing.

One of my fave's would be heading out onto the lake early in the morning....water is like glass with a heavy mist on it as the sun comes up over the pines on the shoreline, the loons calls are echoing down the lake, find your favourite fishing spot...doesn't get much better.

I like flipping through my longboxes full of comic books, appreciating what I have and picking out ones to read. Now I can read them to my five year old as well.

Adrian, though I don't fish (sorry RickF!), I have to say that some moments in the kayak when the water in the river is like glass, morning mist, rising sun, etc...should also be on my list!

I think a "Bazinga" is appropriate here.
