My last one sentence blog was about my untimely fall and how my right hand was temporarily rendered non functional. Last night I was wondering if today I would be able to, at least, check in and wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. For the first time ever I wondered about what to be thankful for, of anything. It was a great mental exercise since I revisited friends and family physically gone from this world and I thanked them for their love and compassion towards this very faulty human. I revisited my pets, gone and present, who I call my children. And so my mind went on a odd and wonderful journey of thanks. Then I realized, for the first time, that what I am most thankful for is the existence of beauty. Yes, everywhere. I have been blessed with the ability to see it, touch it, smell it. My senses are beauty magnets. All the ugliness and pain in my life has been lived and felt and then allowed to take a back seat to my ever lasting awe of all things beautiful and mysterious.
Wishing you all a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. Thank you for being my friend. MJ
