Pleasures

book-pages

The first look out of the window in the morning
The old book found again
Enthusiastic faces 
Snow, the change of the seasons
The newspaper
The dog
Dialectics
Taking showers, swimming
Old music
Comfortable shoes
Taking things in
New music
Writing, planting
Travelling 
Singing
Being friendly.

~ Bertolt Brecht, “Pleasures”
