I feel a very unusual sensation - if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude. Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)

thank you so much

it's been almost exactly a YEAR since i was purposefully grateful on my gratitude blog!
today, i was prompted by a random urge to check my horoscope on freewill astrology... to start posting more.

it said:

Entomologist Justin O. Schmidt drew up an index to categorize the discomfort caused by stinging insects. The attack of the bald-faced hornet is "rich, hearty, slightly crunchy. Similar to getting your hand mashed in a revolving door." A paper wasp delivers pain that's "caustic and burning," with a "distinctly bitter aftertaste. Like spilling a beaker of hydrochloric acid on a paper cut." The sweat bee, on the other hand, can hurt you in a way that's "light, ephemeral, almost fruity. A tiny spark has singed a single hair on your arm." In bringing this to your attention, Gemini, I hope to inspire the rebel in you. Your homework is to create an equally nuanced and precise index of experiences that feel good. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you will be able to call on tremendous reserves of intelligence as you identify the numerous modes of pleasure that are available to you, and define them in exquisite detail.

i guess i can START with a big thank you to freewill astrology.

thank you for my gratitude blog

okay, so lets see, i am thankful for having a place to live which is warm and i have my own bedroom and there is always plenty to eat and i have plenty of clothes to wear and people frequently tell me i am pretty and that i seem like an intelligent person and they compliment my hair. i am thankful that i am able to read. i am thankful that i am able to access the internet. i am thankful for my cellphone. i am thankful that i have people who like me. i am even thankful sometimes for the people who don't like me. i am thankful that people care about me.
i am thankful that i can walk (really fast) i am thankful for creativity. i am thankful for freedom of speech. i am thankful for times when i am not noticed when i don't feel like being noticed.
okay, i feel complaints creeping in.
i am thankful for Eckhart Tolle's New Earth.
