Gratitude Day


After this long weekend and before I sit down to dealing with the inevitable letdown of real life, I want to list many things I am grateful for, in no particular order:

  • the beautiful sunshine we're enjoying after so many months of rain

  • that I drank just enough water to avoid sunstroke yesterday

  • the incredible effort and work of the volunteers and coordinators of the Lake Oswego Art Show

  • that I had enough energy to create and submit art and be a participant

  • my friend Jenny is home after 2 weeks in the hospital

  • the existence of Starbucks, cell phones and taxi cabs after I missed the last shuttle

  • I'm of the age that reunions are interesting and welcome

  • the friends I've reconnected with this past year and the new ones I've met

  • Bob's help framing the art works and attending the show with me

  • Bob doing the laundry, cleaning and barbecuing while I gallavanted around all weekend

  • the artists who teach and share their techniques in person and on-line

  • the people who support me and have supported me in the past that I often take for granted!
  • I have work/career that lets me indulge my interests
