purple jelly beans / pink pom poms

"Make keen use of your five senses and become a sensualist." - 54 precious keys to happiness

I was keenly aware of my five senses today as I sat outside and ate my lunch. I looked around at the colorful world around me - yellow tulips, pink pompom cherry blossoms, white and purple pansies, the green green grass and the beautiful blue sky - colors matching the sweet and chewy jelly beans I had as a snack. A bird sang and I couldn't place it's song. A cool breeze was blowing, that mixed with the warm sunshine, brought a tingle to my spine . It gusted at times whipping up a mist from the waterfalls that cooled my skin and blew around in swirling delight the soft pink petals of the cherry tree that landed in piles like pink snow. It was a delightful day to be outside.
What excited your senses today?

Oh wow, can't wait to feel/hear/smell that! Here we had some glittering frost on the trees, it was dark as I went to work so I kind of missed most of it. I heard with my ears how beautiful it was though :)

You are a lovely writer. Here we have snow but it is slowly melting. I cannot wait until we get some color and the flowers start showing their pretty faces again!

Another perfect pairing.

For your question:
The thing that felt best to me today was an enormous hug from one of my students.
The thing that sounded best to me today was my own voice as I sang along with some of my favorite blues.
The thing that looked best to me today was the birds perching in the neighbor's tree.

today it was the limes of brand new leaves, the taste of chicken tacos and the scent of lemons
