It’s a good day for gratitude. It’s always a good day for gratitude.

I am grateful for getting up early and doing yoga. I am grateful grateful grateful for this body that moves and stretches and reaches and is flexible and strong.

I am grateful for my friend Andrew, who came over and helped me so much with my vision for my bedroom, which included what’s so difficult for me: moving electronic components and redoing wiring. It went quickly and easily. A snap!

I am grateful for my now bare other nightstand. Only has a lovely lamp on it. Now if/when I ever invite someone to share my bed, there will be a usable nightstand. How inviting!

I am grateful for my room which now has a set up and functional altar. I’m lighting candles and incense and my room feels more like sacred space.

I am grateful for my oldtimers AA meeting, and for seeing a celeb at the meeting. I’ve missed that occasional celeb sighting since I left NYC. Fun. There’s a part of me that’s riveted by that stuff.

I’m grateful for feeling better. For my commitment to practice mindfulness and gratitude when eating. That’s a tough one for me.

All is well and all is well and all is well. How nice to know this!

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.
