grateful to have had my 2nd vax dose
knowing it’s not just to keep me well
but to give all who i may cross paths with
a better chance to stay well too.
“healing yourself is connected with healing others.”
how sweet to find this book
sitting outside on the window ledge of a downtown store
on a sunny saturday
just waiting for someone
to pick it up and take it home to read.
gratitude to the book fairies.

“I made this thank you note. I’m going to give it to my family.”
“what are you thanking them for?”
“I’m going to thank them for being my family.”
“if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”
*Eckhart von Hochheim (c. 1260 – c. 1328), commonly known as Meister Eckhart, was a German theologian, philosopher, and mystic.
along the way on my weekday drive
there is often a traffic mishap or accident
and if I begin to worry about being late
or get annoyed by the hold up
i think about how the person/people involved must feel
how their life instantly changed in that moment
they were just having an ordinary day
maybe they were
headed to work
to visit someone
leaving for a vacation
going to a celebration
so many possibilities
i’ve got no room to complain
nothing to worry about
puts it all right back into perspective
so i listen to my music and sit with my gratitude.
“since human wisdom cannot secure us from accidents,
it is the greatest effort of reason to bear them well. “
