The Things I like

I like waking up to the sunlight shining through my window and reflecting shadows on the ceiling.

I like seeing the blooming crepe myrtles through my bathroom window.

I like the feel of dewy grass below my feet.

Spring Shore

Lilibeth André, Spring Shore, oil, 12×16

I like finding new blossoms in my garden.

I like the rhythm of my breath and my step as I jog down the street.

I like the way the perspiration collects on my cheekbones and my lip.

I like the feel of the breeze on my face as it blows through my hair.

I like the tired way I feel after exercise.

I like the colors in the sky as the sun begins to rise.

I like the sound of wind rustling through the trees in the woods, like the waves of the ocean lapping on the beach.

I like the feel of a warm summer rain as I splash on the pavement.

I like the feel of the music as a sway to its rhythm in the open space.

I like the feel of the crisp air on my skin when I hike in my shorts up a mountain on a winter day.

I like the taste of things that are sweet, salty, and sour.

I like the face of a child, of an elder, of you.

I like to hear the voice of a tenor.

I like to outline the figure with its nuance and dimension.

I like to see deeply and share that image through the work of my hand.

I like to believe.

I like the sound of water.

I like the sounds of the wind, strings and percussion.

I like the feel of clay in my hands and between my toes.

I like to see the sunset, the rising moon, and the stars.

I like the feel of exhaustion as I put my head on my pillow and drift off to sleep…
