“What day is it?”
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.
― A.A. Milne
The smallest things make me happy.
Watching the moon rise across the river.
Having a full pot of homemade vegetable curry on the stove.
Being in the present enough to know this is where I want to stand.
Creating stories word by word.
Listening to the wild roosters in the park across the street greet the morning.
Moving in beauty along the river, in the city, on the beach.
Seeing possibility everywhere I look.
Eating organic veggies from the farmers market.
Sleeping with the shutters closed in complete darkness.
Reading a poem a day.
Connecting with a faraway friend.
Accepting guidance and support.
Learning through online courses.
Growing in my abilities.
Writing children’s books.
Working with an amazing illustrator who turns my ideas into reality.
Receiving the gift of time to focus on my creative life.
Holding my husband’s hand.
Sharing my world with others.
Loving this gift of life.
