"Fried chicken'll make you feel better about life."
It's not about food.
It's not about southern comforts.
It's about the simple things.
It's about the simple things that matter in this life.
I've written a hundred times about how it's the simple things in life that are the most important and I find examples of that every single day. It's in a hug. An iced coffee. The smile of a hot stranger. Remembering that that skyline is my skyline. The knowledge that I'm making it. All the different shoes people are wearing on the train in the morning. A text message from a new friend. A quote that spurs my thinking. The sound of life on the streets. A movie that makes me cry. The possibility of endless possibilities.
These are a few of my favorite things.
And my most favorite are the most simple.
And that makes me happy. Which I am. Happy.
