From a quote by Wendell Berry

it’s the burnt toast on the floor and the crackers in the cupboard and the possibility however slim of mice it’s the freedom to do as we please eat chocolate pie for breakfast drink whiskey and rum til we’re crosseyed and giddy it’s the smell of fall knocking on the door and then running away and then coming back and hoping for a laugh it’s the tickle of a memory you thought you forgot it’s the toes touching when it’s too hot for more it’s the almost finished bottle of ketchup in the fridge that no one dares finish because what if there’s a spontaneous barbecue
