1. The sound of a good, drenching rain, one that looks as if it's going to stay all day.
2. My daughter with her Barbies spread all over the living room floor, all geared up for a full day of Barbie world.
3. Still thinking about the beautiful writing in an amazing classic I read last week (and wondering how I never heard about it in umpteen years of high school, college, and graduate school).
