Not Just On This Day

| 0 comments

But every day, I am grateful for

the beauty of this life,

the quiet moments of awareness and peace,

the raucous moments of chaotic joy,

the love of family and friends,

the readers and listeners who allow my stories to engulf them,

the writers who have shared their words with me,

the creativity of so many artists who allow me to see and feel things anew,

the connections made possible by this modern life,

my Muse and the Mystery that compels me to write.

If we have ever shared anything:

a meal, a story, an adventure, or a conversation,

I thank you.
