... a rustic provencal pain au levain turned sliced-down on a thick birch cutting board.
... a fluffy calico cat of peach, white and gray who runs off the porch to greet me at my car.
... the flicker of candlelight in the early morning through a Moroccan-style brass votive holder.
... the distant wind-composed melody of wind-chimes.
... the rich smokiness of the Lapsang Souchong that hangs in my mouth.
... the teal ceramic teapot resting on the carved, wooden trivet from India.
... bread dipped in olive oil + honey.
