All Time Great Good Feelings - Class D

Drinking coffee in the morning before the sun comes up, standing at the warehouse dock on the empty bed of a Ford F550, after all the complaining union drivers have left with their loads and before any of the rowdy bi-lingual pickers arrive and before any angry customers or salespeople call and the only sound is the backup beeping of the Receiving forklifts at the back of the warehouse out of sight and holding that ceramic-vendor-swag mug with Colombian aromatic steam lifting from it and the chill of the air is just cool enough to numb your knuckles and nose, letting you know you're alive.

Other Class D Good Feelings:
  • Smoking a cigar on the balcony with the door open and Al Green or Bobbie Blue Bland or The Black Keys or Rick Ross blasting from the stereo inside...
  • Falling asleep on an sparsely seated Amtrak car from Chicago to Detroit, waking right at arrival...
  • Finishing the last chapter of a good book on the EL...
  • A favorite new magazine and a #2 coming in your own comfortable bathroom...

  1. Amazing how the often overlooked things in life are the best. I think I need to pay more attention to the seemingly little things/coincidences.

    Happy New Year!
