Saltwater taffy, orange cream soda, kazoo solos, iced watermelon juice, cycling at sunset, pistachio gelato, the feel of garden dirt, sitting in empty garages, sight-reading Chopin waltzes, reciting poetry, green tea, stories told under the stars, post-workout exhaustion, cold peaches, lingering words, peering into car hoods under naked lightbulbs, fresh-grown basil, genuine smiles.
