Gratitude Monday 8/9

Eek! I leave for my journey in three weeks. And one day. Wow.

I’m excited! Bought a few Eagle Creek packing cubes yesterday; I’m organizing my packing, thinking if I can cram and squoosh stuff I can take even more stuff! Oy vey this is a big deal! I am grateful for the wonderful experience I had dancing this weekend. Although I stepped on to the dance floor for only two hours (out of a whole weekend of day and night classes and dances), I had some quality dances. Nice. Very very nice. I love blues dancing! I am grateful for ritual Friday night, celebrating Lammas with my Amazon tribe and time by the bay with my other coven sisters yesterday. I love my spiritual life and my deepening commitment to this work. To the goddess. To being a priestess. I am a grateful woman and now it’s time for me to do some work. Before that, though, I’ll go inside and pull out a gratlist.

I am grateful for:

  • friends
  • ritual
  • my upcoming journey
  • making sacred every moment of my life
  • health
  • sunshine (a rare commodity around here these days)
  • food from my garden: chard, kale, tatsoi, mizuna, beans, pattypan squash, beet greens, turnip greens
  • streaming the Stern show on my computer
  • mindful eating
  • technology that works
  • an open heart
  • generosity

I’m a grateful grateful woman.

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.
