“Happiness is itself a kind of gratitude.”(Joseph Wood Krutch)
It made me happy today to go outside into the warm November sun and sit in a garden of rosemary, of gray stone and of thyme, my feet up on the wooden bench in favorite purple shoes, to read over what I had written over the weekend. An hour in a day, a moment in a life, the tremendous blessing of being what I am at best. In quiet, in stillness, in dappled sunlight with green things around me and words playing through my head where music has recently been and will be again.
How could I be more grateful than this?
