A hug from Sam

A hug from Sam

I am a person of small gestures.

Little things in life give me pleasure.

  • Sitting on my old couch, after an afternoon nap, and sipping a cup of coffee
  • Walking on the sandy shore of Lake Michigan and singing the same Serbian song over and over again, like a mantra
  • Walking on the sandy shore of Lake Michigan and looking for treasures – twigs, stones, wild grasses
  • Walking Kaya late in the evening, darkness around us, the two of us invisible
  • Walking Kaya in the afternoon, finding wildflowers along the path, making an extravagant bouquet
  • Lying in my bed, listening to a torrential downpour outside
  • An honest conversation with a friend on a Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market
  • A hug from Sam, for no reason at all
