Here’s a 🎨 poem @xokat shared:
•••
“When it’s too hard to tell the floor from the ceiling of a dark room, I think about the texture of new carpeting. The warmth of towels straight out of the dryer. Small, unrehearsed sips of coffee.
•••
Or seeing the handwritten loops of loved ones tucked inside my mailbox like a snail curled counterclockwise in his shell. It’s the little things that keep me going.
•••
The technicolor foam of a car wash, the smell of detangler, or the gentle rap-tap of rain on my window pane. It’s the little things that make me new.”

What are your little things?
