Sometimes, it’s just the little things…

that make you happy.

– eating Doritos (cool-ranch, not the nacho flavored…)

Inca Kola.

– my Seagull guitar.

– the clouds from my roof.

– the army has pulled out of Jacarezinho.

– a clean house.

– Tina Fey and 30Rock (hilarious – not quite Arrested Development level, but close…)

– a letter from my brother.

– a message on the answering machine from Anna.

– seeing friends out of prison, off drugs, and trying to live well.

…and sometimes, the little things can be big things too…
