I have been thinking a lot about time. This is the eve before my birthday.
I am amazed by the speed that life seems to be whizzing by.
I don't want to miss any of it.
I want to be fully awake and grateful for all of it, for as long as it lasts.
So I thought in honor of the past year and for the year ahead I would do a post about what I am most grateful for, here is my list:
My family, including the furballs even my dear Prozac dog.
My friends, including my wonderful bloggy friends.
My health and even my aches and pains and sore back that let me know it is time to rest and take it easy.
The color red in my paint box.
The family of doves that come for breakfast daily.
This computer even if it is old and too slow.
The amazing and still moving Taos Mountain, the reason I am here and the reason I stay.
Art, even the bad, if I am not making it I am reading about it or looking at it daily, not sure I could live without it.
Ditto for good books and movies.
My new sofa that a friend and client gave me today.
The softness of my sheets.
The happiness deep in my soul, that no matter what happens, no matter how devastating the news, LIFE IS PARADISE.
