Life's Simple Pleasures

When the dog barks, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad. I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad. (Oh, come on! You know what song that is!)

So, here are mine ...



A pair of well-constructed sneakers encourage my first step every morning. I had been jumping from one brand to another; Converse, Domanchi, Puma. Fred Perry is the latest addition, and I'm loving it.

Qualified books are essential to keep me sane. Ultimate visual pleasures come from magazines like Vogue (Italia). I said "visual" because I don't speak Italian. I do, however, understand just a little bit of English, and am still learning how to write better. In this case, Monocle is my guru. I almost don't care to read any other magazines but this genius one. (And, I never get tired to encourage people to trash those DA-MAN, High End, Prestige, PMR, and other stupid so-called magazines. Really, they are simply, truly moronic.)

Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre with illustrations by Dame Darcy was a treasure I found in Kinokuniya. Jane Eyre was one of the first novels that I first read when I was a Junior High School geek, so it always has a nostalgic value.

What would we be without music? Wingless butterflies. Jason Mraz's We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. may not be as groundbreaking as his previous albums, yet still a pleasure to listen to. Coldplay's Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends has been looping in my iPod for more than a week. Madonna's Give It 2 Me is fun, and I never stop collecting her singles.
