gratitude wednesday 12/24

I’m grateful to be alive. I’m grateful to be alive. I’m grateful to be alive.

I’m grateful to be listening to Bob Dylan’s Deep Tracks show on the radio. He’s playing all kinds of obscure holiday songs. In fact, I just heard Judy Holliday singing a Christmas song. Nice. Now up: a bluesy Christmas Mornin’ by Titus Turner. I love listening to the music Bob Dylan spins.

I’m grateful for this rainy gray Christmas Eve morning. I’m grateful for a schedule free from work today, for the most part. I’m taking the next three days mostly off, now that the press check was postponed by the printer.

Lots of movies! Oh yeah.

Movies and meetings.

I have clean clothes, good food to eat, I have my health, I’m warm.

Life is good and full of blessing. I have a movie date with a friend tonight, holiday dinner with family tomorrow, a movie with my niece on Friday, movie night at Andrew’s Friday night—lots and lots of fun. I notice a theme…Yup, I love movies.

Blessings, blessings, blessings. How nice to be awake and aware.

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.
