    Even Something Simple Will Make My Day

    A raindrop on my window, a clear puddle filled with grass underneath, all beautiful and wonderful. A nice breeze on a warm day, a wave when I pull to the side of the road. I wish I could live with more simple things, but alas, life is mostly complicated. I can dream, can't I?

    Tomorrow is Valentine's Day!

    Single or not, I've always loved it. It makes me feel in awe of all of those around me who do such good to me. I am an extremely affectionate person, and this is my favourite day of the year. I put it even before Christmas.

    Last week I saw two babies

    who didn't know one another just run up and hug one another. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen and it made me think about what the world would be like if we as adults did that to each other...weirdness aside.
