Feeling the unconditional love of a canine companion
Creating with your hands
Making people you love laugh until they can't breathe
Losing yourself in a forest
Dreaming of what could be and planning to make it happen
Unexpected plot twists
Wet earth beneath your bare feet
A friendly debate
Being there for someone that has no one else

Remembering your beloved dead with affection not grief
Incense in a dimly lit room
Feeling kinship when looking into the eyes of an animal
Seeing living things grow under your care
Helping someone who really needs it
A hand in your hand
Endless Green and Dark Earth
