gratitude wednesday 1/20

I am grateful this morning for the drenching rain and dramatic storms. For the beautiful rainbow yesterday afternoon between soaking rains. For the Cheshire cat smiling moon early yesterday evening. For the hopeful end of the California drought. I haven’t seen this much rain since I moved to California in 1994.

I am grateful for my new glasses. Light on my face. New Rx means I see with more clarity. And they look okay.

I am grateful for health. Renewed health. Clear breathing. The end of coughing. (Begone! And stay gone!)

I am grateful for commitment to centering and meeting people where they’re at. Helps in every interaction.

I am grateful for love and loving.

I am grateful for lessons learned. So many lessons learned.

I am grateful for the technologies that support my active curious life.

I am grateful for sexual expression, my own and others’.

I am grateful for time’s healing. For loving and letting go.

Life is good and I am blessed.

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.
