Although it is not my normal style of blog, right now I am enjoying one of the simple pleasures of life and so I thought I would try a listicle that examines some of the simple pleasures of life.
Listening to bad karaoke: While I try only to sing good karaoke myself, there is a certain pleasure in people lacking abandon and singing, or at least trying to sing, even when (especially when) they are terrible about it. Not only it is fun when one knows one can do something better but it is refreshing to see people pursue expression with abandon because it makes everyone less self-conscious and that can only be a good thing in a life that is all too often full of anxiety.
Talking with friends and loved ones: I have to say that this is a pleasure that I have been able to enjoy far more at some times than others, and I enjoy this sort of positive communication whether it comes verbally in person, on the phone, or in conversation online, though I have to admit I have a partiality to in person conversations.
Good food and drink: There is a simple joy in eating pleasant food. I must admit as well that there is something very refreshing about a simple glass of cold water, or rather several of them. My tastes in food are fairly broad in that I have always liked like foods from a variety of areas, but also somewhat simple and straightforward at the same time.
Sleep: Of course, napping during the early afternoon as a way to relax after a long and busy is a great way to not have the time to write longer entries, but I have something to say if I have enough energy for it.
