Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for creating an amazing community of writers and a safe, welcoming space to write and share.

This morning I searched for a writing idea on Lynne Dorfman’s Blog and found this post about underrated joys. Who can resist a list? I am responding with my own list of underrated joys. This is a similar exercise to My Pile Of Good Things, but why not?

  1. First bloom on a Peggy Martin rose.
  2. Re-bloom on an orchid I bought at the grocery store.
  3. The scent of my first sip of coffee.
  4. My engagement ring reflecting the stained glass in church.
  5. A student has an Aha moment.
  6. Students writing poetry with me.
  7. My dog’s unconditional love.
  8. Facetime.
  9. Real time: “Mamere, you’re here!” Stella lights up with joy.
  10. Stained glass egret in my window.
  11. A message on Voxer.
  12. An egret or heron on the bayou.
  13. Creating something new.
  14. An actual letter in the mailbox.
  15. Being with family.
  16. Chats after church.
  17. Comments: Sally has a good post today celebrating comments.
  18. A ping from the Ring: “There is motion in your Wood duck House.”
  19. My mother’s voice.
  20. Hitting publish on a Slice.

What is on your list?
