Wow. I would have bought at least two!
This made me think about things we stockpile "just in case." Why so much stuff?
It's like writing a book and putting in too much description. One taste (one perfect element of description) can be better than a whole trunkful (a chapter of purple prose).
What is YOUR guilty indulgence?

I can't take credit for this idea, because it was my mother who looked out the car window at the white blossoms and said, "Look! The snow rose from the ground to the trees!" It was such an interesting perspective that I smile when I share it with you.
How many times do we see the same old things and think nothing new of them? How much more interesting would life be if we shook our thoughts a little to rattle them around into new patterns? Now I've got my eye on the leaves of my window plants pressed against the glass like little green hands, yearning toward the sunlight. I don't always remember that they are living things, yet shaking up my perspective lets me see them as little green growies who are moving toward a goal.
What's new around you?
