1/ Looking up

I don’t do it often enough, but it’s awesome to look at the sky on a clear night, standing motionless despite circling the sun at 30km per second. I envy those who’ve seen the curvature of earth (possible at upwards of 60,000ft, supposedly).

2/ A happy client

Over the years I’ve not always got things right with my work, so a delighted client makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, and it’s good knowing I played a (small) part in helping people get to where they want to be.

3/ Good company

When I’m with those I love I try to remind myself that life can change in an instant, and that I need to make the most of every minute.

4/ Music

There’s something special how music can pull memories from places I don’t understand, showing me things I’m not looking at.

5/ Chocolate

How about this for artistry?
