Because I got tagged by [ profile] bakashoujiki...

List ten things that make you happy in no particular order and then tag five friends...

1. Friendly/caring/loving touch. Being an inhibited, shy, single person makes pursuit of this variety of happiness somewhat challenging.

2. Being creative--whether writing or doing art or convincing myself to cook once in a while.

3. Dancing--international folk dancing especially.

4. Relaxing with family--being our wacky, "playing-off-each-other" selves. Despite all our angst, there are times when we laugh ourselves silly--and I love that about us.

5. Hanging out with friends.

6. Watching anime and reading manga and manhwa--and sharing my enthusiasm for them with other (interested!) people.

7. Singing, by myself or with others.

8. Reading aloud--picture books, Shakespeare, poetry, other stuff.

9. Feeling like I'm doing my job well at work:
*connecting patrons with the books they want/information they need
*helping someone become more confident around computers
*getting kids involved with books/songs during storytime
*having conversations (both lighthearted and serious) with children and teens.

10. Being at peace with myself, with others, with my surroundings--"still and cool in the mind" if I want to get all Quakerly.

And for good measure, two pilfered from [ profile] bakashoujiki:
11. "Receiving comments and email." To which I'd add: And real, *personal* snail mail? Makes for a red-letter day.

12. "Clean things. I hate cleaning, but I love the result." Once I really get into the swing of cleaning, I actually often enjoy it. You wouldn't know it looking at my apartment, though! Kind of related to this: Puttering around the house gives me a surprising amount of satisfaction.

Tagging five friends? Hmmm...

*grins* Thanks.

In no particular order:

1) Family, when we're not arguing. And when I remember the times we were, and it was because we cared.
2) Friends, when we click. And when I remember all the times we didn't, and it doesn't matter because we love each other.
3) Writing, when I have inspiration.
4) Biking, in a warm summer breeze with music in my ears
5) Dancing, with cute sweet guys. (or my girl friends *g*)
6) Reading, an epic over 400 pages till 7 am. Or a warm letter from a good friend.
7) Being alone in the middle of no where, exploring, as long as I know how to get back home. Hiking goes under here.
8) Debating, when people are smart and passionate, and you come away laughing over the problems in this world because the other person gets them, too.
9) Self-less courage, kindness from strangers
10) Love, in all forms.

Mine are going to be all superficial and selfish and stuff, since I think you know that I do value my family and friends and doing good and stuff like that beyond there.

1) Blue-green
2) Late afternoon sunlight
3) Cameras
4) Tabby cats (and the rest of them too)
5) Pizza
6) The Amazing Race
7) small pieces of art pottery
8) Skeleton leaves
9) Good iced tea
10) Patterns and textures

Plus, you did say "things," not "actions" or "ways of being" or I continue to defend my choices :-)
