I like hanging clothes on the line. I like watching them flap in the wind and spin around on my space-saver line. I like the magic of sunshine making my white t-shirts glow. I really like the smell after they’ve been on the line. Weather permitting, I always hang my pillow cases on the line.
I’ve started noticing things like this and taking a few moments to stay with the feeling. It reminds me of ban Breathnach’s book from the 80’s, Simple Abundance. Notice simple, comforting acts, grow them, and keep them in your life. Like a barefoot walk on the grass when there’s still dew in the morning. Take a nap on a warm summer day, have a root beer in a big mug.
Think about it: What has brought you comfort today?
