I love watching the sun set and, even though I'm a night person, I love watching the sun rise. Sometimes a beautiful sunrise or sunset is all that I need to make a rotten day glorious. I don't think people notice sunrises or sunsets anymore. One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday evening is on my porch. I turn on the radio so I can listen to Prairie Home Companion and the jazz shows that are on local public radio all Saturday evening. Then I'll spend the next few hours just unwinding on the porch while I watch the shadows and lighting change as the sun sets.
Friends are the sauce and spice of life. Without friends (or Friends as well, if you're a Quaker), what's the point? I can't remember who said, "Friendship doubles life's pleasures and halves the pains." (If you know who said it, please leave me feedback!) (I think it was Mark Twain.) I am proud of the friends I have. The friends I have are people who have helped me through the hard times and shared the fun in my life (and the reverse is also true).
Music adds a lot to my life. When I'm writing or meditating or working on tarot, I like new age music (but I hate the term new age!). I love Enya. I also like listening to musical soundtracks. Some favorites are The Music Man, Fiddler on the Roof, and West Side Story. My favorite composer is Beethoven. Instead of being raised on classical music, when I was still in junior high, I got my parents turned on to classical music. Now I also love jazz--especially live, but I don't often get out for live jazz.
My friends (and Friends) will faint when they hear a chatter box like me say this, but I love silence. I never got used to it until I started attending Friends Meeting (Quakers go to Meeting, not Church). Friends worship in silence. Now that I've gotten used to silence, it has become important to me and to my writing. Silence is especially blessed during sunrises and sunsets. I go for walks at night frequently so I can hear nature and the Earth through the silence. A silence shared with a close friend can be especially powerful.
