Good Things

I am thankful for . . .

1. wind through the green and sunshining trees outside my window.
2. how in every minute I can choose how I want to be, and I can choose to appreciate just being here.
3. music and how it can instantly change my mood.
4. paper and pen—oh, how I love writing on the smooth pages every morning.
5. simple time together with my husband, doing everyday things . . . and enjoying each others’ company in the process.
6. the telephone, which makes it possible for me to talk to my family even though they are far away.
7. dogs—every single one of them makes me stop and smile.
8. books (thank you Gutenberg and your printing press), and how we can jump into a whole new world every time we pick up a new volume.
9. my body and how it keeps carrying me through, and propels me by bicycle and by foot across town.
10. cooking—that you can take eggs, salt, flour, water, olive oil, garlic and parmesan cheese and make something dynamic and awe-inspiring to eat in under an hour (pasta with oil and garlic is so fine!)

    yes! i’m in total agreement with you on everything (except maybe the telephone — though i do love being able to stay in contact with faraway friends and relatives, and it’s much better than facebook). i especially love nos. 3 and 9 — isn’t it great to feel the power of your body propel you through space?
