I mean, there are a lot of delights and I’ve been experiencing them all week. Canadian doughnuts, nieces and nephews, showing up to the American/Canadian Border Patrol on bicycle and reaching for our passports in my star jean jacket pocket. That was delightful. Luna softly running her paw through my hair as I write this is delightful. Astro licking my knee, also as I write this, is delightful as well. Cookies are one of my main life events, along with rainbows, moose and sundresses. Those things that exist on the periphery of love and impact and experience and ambition, but they’re more than along for the ride. Sometimes, they fuel it.

Aren’t they.. delightful? Yes, of course they are. They’re positively gushy. You can pair them with a cold glass of milk, maybe some tea (not me), or pumpkin coffee. Maybe a pumpkin spice latte.
