[i don't know what week it is in my moments of grace journal anymore
and i don't care]
it's not important to keep track of how many weeks or photos or things
i am grateful for
it's just important to be grateful
yesterday i took myself on a date
an artist's date
anyone who's read Julia Cameron's seminal work 'the Artist's Way'
knows exactly what that is and why it is important
i went to a nearby park
and photographed historic buildings
and some glorious flowers
for about three hours
i am grateful for the time and opportunity to do that
to indulge in the hot sunshine
the birds singing
the flowers bloming
the whisper of history in the setting
[i really want to learn more about this place
and what they plan to do with all those empty old buildings]
i am grateful for breath and life
and love and memories
and i am grateful that the deep revelations i had this week and weekend
have already changed me enough
that i have let go of more anger and pain.
enough to be truly thankful for it ALL.
i am grateful for healing...
