This question came up in a group last night, and folks took their responses in all directions: chocolate, sex, a martini, destructive behaviors, feeling known by another.
Which made me think about the types of comfort in my world. The blissed out, giggly feeling of too many drinks where no trouble can touch the mind; the warmth and safety of being held closely by someone who cares; the satisfying and salty mouthfeel and flavor of homemade macaroni and cheese; the lightness of spirit following a meaningful conversation that ends in accepting silence; the cool smoothness of crisp cotton sheets on a lazy weekend morning.
I’ll raise a glass of hot coffee to this, the discovery of comforts in life.
