• the way ice cubes melt instantly against flesh on a hot summer day
  • the inexplicable relaxing effects of running your fingers through someone’s hair
  • lying your head on someone’s chest; the gentle rise and fall of breath and hearing the steady beat of their heart
  • how people and families have a distinct smell and walking into the house of someone you love is like swimming through air full of their essence
  • that moment when you stand up and all the blood rushes to your head and you feel dizzy and drunk and like time is moving in slow motion but you can’t do anything about the edges of your vision being blurred and then it’s gone before you even realize it
  • how the shape of some names in your mouth makes them taste sweeter than others
  • the joy of ripping apart a pomegranate and staining your fingers and lips and clothes dark red just to get to the juicy seeds
  • the way some people are the perfect height for you to hug
