That moment when you’ve been making anything (a bookcase to a souffle) and you finish it and it amazes even you.
Crossing the border into a previously unvisited town, city or country.

Waking up early, then realizing that it’s your day off before your head leaves the pillow.
Crows croaking outside your tent early in the morning
Aiding someone who doesn’t expect it
The first time your child smiles/farts/says I love you/does something herself
Doing something with exceptional skill after years of practice
The moment of insight
A very cold beer on an empty stomach
Sleep/water/food after going without for a long time
Came here for Conan, etc.

Put me to sleep, my work here is done.
I know I am a weirdo, but…
Appreciating my scars, injuries, and imperfections. It means I am still here.
The first time I took a giant golden puffball out of the oven I felt like I was the champion of the world.
The flavor of melons.
Robot Chicken did a great tribute to that scene:
Seeing something truly majestic in nature.
Passing on a skill, knowledge or interest in something.
Watching your children develop their own personalities and learn new things.

What about the love of a cat!?
Drinking cold, clean water.
I find it astonishing sex wasn’t mentioned even once - but then I clicked through. It was mentioned plenty, but the nice curators at Bits and Pieces did not feel we should see those answers. Sex is naughty, I suppose.
Heroin, I presume? Am saving that one for my twilight years.
