Placeri simple – Those simple pleasures

“…the pleasures of food and drink, of lying naked in a hot bath, of scratching an itch, of sneezing and farting, of spending an extra hour in bed, of turning your face toward the sun on a mild afternoon in a late spring or early summer and feeling the warmth settle upon your skin.”

Excerpt from Paul Auster’s Winter Journal

Ce subiect mai bun intr-o zi ploioasa de vineri (sau insorita…daca sunteti norocosi) decat acele mici placeri ce nu ne costa decat putin timp si ne aduc placere in forma pura?
Mirosul de cafea dimineata, placerea de a te intinde (da…exact), un zambet ce vine din suflet, o floare de mac intre sinele de tren…

Care sunt placerile voastre simple?
Eu numai gandindu-ma la ele si am reusit sa zambesc asteptand urmatorul moment de gratie, scurt si extrem de placut.

§ For my English speaking readers

What a better subject on a rainy Friday (or not…if you are lucky) than those small pleasures that cost us only time (and not much) and bring us pure joy?
The smell of coffee in the morning, stretching with every fibre of your body in your (still) warm bed after a good night sleep, a genuine smile, a bright red flower between the train rails…

What are your simple pleasures?
Just thinking of those little moments made me smile and forget the rain and clouds that reign on this first day of summer.
