-The sound of rain coming through an open window
-Raspberry tea, which seems to have been brewed specifically to soothe my soul
-Talking to one of my best friends for hours about Serious Important Grown Up Stuff (like moving, and long distance, and injuries) and Silliness too (she's making bagels: brunch is the best).
-My big brother.
-My little brother.
-Conversations, however brief, beginning with that ringtone and ending with "I love you."
-Frank Sinatra from another room in the apartment: it means my roommates are home. It means He is in a good mood or She wants to dance. Or maybe both.
-Cut off shorts and unpinning my hair.
What brings you a feeling of contentment or peace, friends?
