  • when the sun’s setting – anywhere, but especially in the desert

  • the smell of gasoline
  • when a plane finally lands & you’re safely on the ground again
  • finding a cool object at a secondhand store
  • when it’s chilly enough to wear a long sleeved shirt, but not so cold that you can’t still wear shorts
  • driving in LA with my sunroof open when the traffic isn’t bad  
  • looking at old photos
