IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

I used to be shy. You made me sing. ~Rumi
.
Today I am grateful...
  • for my commitment to write a daily gratitude list and post
  • that my HP is kind and loving, not demanding and punishing
  • that my relationship with strangers is different than it has ever been
  • that I used to run FROM, now I run TOWARDS
  • that the literature teaches me that my main problem is my thinking

We have these two forces; this insatiable thirst, compulsion, hunger, yearning, call it what you will. We don't know what we're looking for but we're searching. And the other force; the escape. We're running, not knowing what from. - Eddie E.

I'm grateful for your commitment to write everyday too. Thanks Scott. You always remind me of at least one more thing to be grateful for!

Scott, I'm not running but am enjoying all that the day will bring. Thanks for all that you write.

I can hear you singing all the way here in Virginia.
Will you please sing something other than Nina Hagen when it's time for me to go to sleep tonight?

My other thinking always caused other people a lot of problems as well.
