The rush of love, first whiff of spring blossoms, grit of the garden under fingernails, the sight of seeds sprouting (I never believe they will), a ludicrously good meal with sparkling companions, laughing till you’re weak with it, an unexpectedly lengthy and sensual head massage when being shampooed at the (go to only out of necessity) hairdresser’s, the euphoria of runner’s high, untangled knot of massages, hitting send on a report that’s been expanding your repertoire of curse words for weeks, getting close to finishing your best painting, slowing down, taking your time, so that the feeling of doing it right for once may last a bit longer, sinking back into an obscenely large mass of pillows before opening the half-read book you’ve been craving all day, watching a truly great movie, the smell of steamed oranges being prepared by the best boyfriend ever when you’re bedfellows with a flu, waking up thinking it’s Monday then realising it’s Sunday so sighing back into sleep, fitting into a size 4 jacket when you are actually a size 8 and you weren’t even wearing a spanx.
What are your best sensations?
