gratitude wednesday 2/4

I’m grateful. I’m creating quilt blocks—I’m a mad hand-building quilt block maker. We were asked to make blocks for each of the participants in our group. I’ve made one, and am halfway done with the second. I will say no more now…the energy is building.

I am grateful for gorgeous weather. Fruit trees are budding, there’s more light every day. Windows are open in my house. I held a client meeting in the courtyard yesterday. And for how much my client liked the work I presented. And for my commitment to presenting designs in their best light: well printed, trimmed to size.

I am grateful to feel well enough to attend a networking event last night. To walk for blocks and blocks in downtown Berkeley.

I am grateful to have stocked up on herbs and to have gotten to the farmers market.

And I’m grateful to have gotten to the gym and actually found a parking space.

I’m grateful for technology and for being a learner.

I’m so grateful that Robert helped my sister with her internet problems. He’s a generous guy.

I’m grateful to be alive and healthy and happy and fiercely fearless.

Blessed be!

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.
