I'm a simple girl, really

It doesn't take a lot to keep me happy.

Learning that Jaime Ford's Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is sitting at #15 on the NYT Bestseller list, for example, makes me happy. Not as happy as it makes him, mind you, but close.

Other things that make me happy?

Trees in Oregon, whose blossoms coat their branches like a blanket of pink snow when across the parking lot twisted moss covered limbs reach for the sky.

It snowed that night in Yreka, California.

I suppose my point is when the world's so full of wonder, why not expect to see HOTEL break the NYT top ten?
