Daily Prompt: Luxurious

What’s the one luxury you can’t live without?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LUXURY.

There are many things in life that one can live without.  The obvious springs to mind when it comes to things you can’t live without, such as air, water and food.  All other things could, quite literally, be lived without.  Of course, there are many, many things we wouldn’t want to live without and, for me, some of these are:

  • My son
  • My friends
  • My faculties and senses
  • Love and affection
  • The large collection of healing crystals I’ve gathered
  • My jewellery (rings and earrings in particular though I have one extra special necklace)
  • Clothes and shoes
  • My hobbies
  • Books
  • Computers, phones, internet

But we are material creatures for the most part and we like our things around us.  They are what make life bearable sometimes.  And, I suppose, over and above the necessities of life, every other thing is a luxury.  Despite the fact that we take them for granted much of the time.
