Day 7: five things you couldn’t possibly live without

So these are actually the five things I could, to be literal, go on breathing without, but also things that I really wouldn’t want to live without.

V. My best friend and brother, Phillip.
We have been together for every major event of my life, and he is usually the one on whom I unload the great trials and pains of my life. (Consequently, he may be the one person who knows I’m a basketcase.)

IV. Classical music – playing and listening
Part of the reason it’s so dear to me is that it’s been a part of my life since I was born. It makes me feel alive and is worth it even when I’m frustrated with a piece.

III. Literature
Anything written with real heart and elegance is indispensable.

II. Hot tea
Relaxing and stimulating, and perfect in almost every way.

I. Suede leather winter boots
Incredibly warm, incredibly stylish, unbelievably comfortable.

Day 6: a moment you wish you could re-live

Being five years old, on a sled pulled by one or another of my big brothers, at night with a bright moon. Seeing them look back every bit to make sure I’m still there. ;)

Day 5: A Favorite Quote
