A slow brilliant sunset, with time to watch it.

A towering Duplo Lego structure, left by children waiting for lessons.

A piece of notebook paper titled, “Hoverplate plans,” complete with drawings, labels and purple ink stains.

A deer, trailing me on an early-morning run.

A note on a tiny scrap of paper: Will you go out with me? Yes or no. PS—Hi!

A child too busy naming a future pet mouse to fall sleep.

A note from a student: I love you.

  1. That last one makes me melt. Every so often a student will surprise me and melt my heart with a small gesture of love, whether it's a quick hug or a simple "thank you for the lesson". It's the little things...

  2. Ok, Blogger stopped notifying me of new posts on my favorite blogs! I had to click over to find this. Grr..

    This is a beautiful list. Reminds me of a 10 Bits of Magic.

    1. Janice, I'm afraid you caught me. Maybe not ten of them, but definitely in that spirit.
