Well, it’s Thanksgiving in the United States (we celebrated Thanksgiving in October here in Canada), but I thought that today was a good day to think about gratitude.


Thirteen Things I am Grateful For

1. That my health is good — physically, I am healthy, and mentally/emotionally, I am also well, and have been for over a year.

2. My wonderful family, especially my mother

3. My dear friends — I am especially blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life — I love you all!

4. My little brown dog

5. The relaxation that a cup of tea brings me

6. That I can give back to my community — it’s tremendously important to me

7. My writing — I love to write, and I am grateful that I have been writing again lately

8. The support that my loved ones give me every day

9. Chocolate

10. My new tablet — I’m loving it!

11. That I have such a good doctor

12. To be able to use the telephone after a long period of phobic avoidance

13. That there is no snow on the ground.

Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.

–Pablo Picasso

I love this quote from Pablo Picasso.  On the one hand, it gives me hope — if only I am diligent about practicing my writing, inspiration will find me.

On the other hand, it encapsulates what I am coming to believe about writing.  It is important to work at your craft, regardless of whether the Muse has graced you with her presence.  Daily (or otherwise regular) practice of writing will lead to creativity;  it will find you if only you are working.

Now I just need to carve out a little more time to write, and inspiration will track me down!

I am thinking of you all, hoping that you will all make it through, together with your loved ones.  And survivors of Katrina, I am thinking especially good thoughts for you, sending the best thoughts I possibly can.  I can only hope that you receive assistance MUCH earlier and better than in 2005.  Be well, everyone.
