This is my favorite holiday, not because I like what we did to the Native Americans, which is shameful and not because of the food, though it is wonderful, I love this day because it puts a focus on gratitude.
I learned long ago how powerful and magical gratitude is and I make it a daily practice.
Today I give you a short list of what I am grateful for most:
The health of those I love most
My family and friends
The obvious things like a roof over my head, food to eat, heat.
After all that the thing I am most grateful for is my talent and the fact that I am an artist,
I am grateful for having something in my life I am passionate about.
I am also grateful for good art which I am sorry to say is in short supply these days, but that makes it so much more wonderful when I do see some.
Taos Mountain and all of nature in all it's beauty and wonder.
Magic, which is every where you look.
A warm bed
A good cup of coffee
There is so much to be grateful for, feel free to add to my list.

The last photo is my cat Max helping me as I work, he thinks the table is for him.
I am happily working on more collage today as it is rainy and windy out and threatening to snow.

I have been working on two large and time consuming projects that I will share at some point, let me just say there is a lot of sewing going on with teabags. I needed something more immediate to work on for a break, so with the table as my inspiration I began making collage. Here is the first one for the week.
It is for sale if anyone is interested just email me and I will give you more information and photos.
The price is 90 plus 16 shipping in the US.
I always love to hear your thoughts.
Happy Fall!!! I am really loving it as it is my favorite and only lasts about 6 weeks in Taos.
