Gratitude Monday 8/29

I am grateful for a network of health practitioners that help me take exquisite care of myself.

I am grateful for a beautiful visit with Rose yesterday at Allen and Anna’s birthday party. What a lovely day. Outdoors at Crown Beach in Alameda. Gorgeous day. Good food. Lovely people. Family.

I am so grateful for friends and my sister who care enough for me to help me through mama-stress moments.

I am grateful for my sense of humor.

I am grateful for the willingness to show up. Today. Yesterday. And probably tomorrow.

I am grateful that the east coast fared relatively well during the storm.

I am grateful for being such a good cook.

I am grateful for culinary inspiration. Yesterday I made what I’m calling Raita Pesto. It contained Greek yogurt, basil from the garden, rice vinegar, half a Fresno pepper from the garden, some of my homemade pickled ginger, a little of my homemade sauerkraut. Was a great dip for the grilled veggies and garden tomatoes I brought to the party. I love creating in the kitchen!

I am grateful for a half-great book I read the last few days. Cutting for Stone. The first half was as satisfying as a book can be. The second half, sadly, became predictable and tedious. Oh well, I’ll take it.

I am blessed and honored to share my blessings.

Gratitudes Monday morning February 7th


I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
