Lost and Found
The heat is just tolerable, and the birds calls seem bittersweet. My neighbor is barbecuing chicken and the lovely smell is wafting in through my open windows.

A few days ago I was going through some of my piles and piles of old drawings, sketches, prints and canvases, and a small rectangular box fell on the floor. In it, two of my most used pencils, 6B's, as well as a set of four "Conte a Paris" pencils: sanguine, sepia, pierre noire and blanc. I was so excited! Sometimes it is the simple things. I vaguely remember buying them last fall.

What are some little surprises that have made you smile? :)
