Gratitude Tuesday 9/27

I celebrate with gratitude ease flexibility health, all coursing through my physical body.

I humbly stand in gratitude for the love in my life. For my daughter and sister. For my sisters of choice.

I joyfully express gratitude for my home, for the shelter and safety I get her.

I happily breathe my gratitude for faith and spirituality.

I am grateful for the last bunch of ripe blackberries yesterday, plump and perfectly ripe amid the dying vines.

I am grateful for the bounty of SunGold tomatoes in the garden. Hard to beat the experience of eating sunwarmed SunGolds right off the vine. Yum!

Here’s a true fact: Cherry tomatoes are best when they have split. This is something I never learned when buying them, because vendors don’t pack the little baskets with split tomatoes (cosmetically faulty, I guess). If you have an opportunity to eat ’em off the vine, try the ones that have split (they’ll fall right off the vine into your hand) and you’ll taste the perfection of the precise best moment of ripeness.

I love eating food from the garden, eggs from the hens. Life as an urban farmer. For this Brooklyn girl, these things are simply miracles. Yay!

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.
