8 things i’m thankful for.(while technically off the grid)

That I’m wonderful 88% of the time.

That even though I lack culinary skills, I now know how to “bake my own cake”: (1/4 cup kindness, 3/4 cup funny, 1/4 cup smart, 1/16 generosity, 2 cups creativity, 1/8 cup impatience and overly critical, 1/16 cup determination, 1/8 cup resilience); compliments and insults are just icing.

My “off the grid” location.

Rob Collins – my best friend from college who emailed me from his home in Vienna Austria today. I was nice to wake up and read that email to start my day.

Avalon. ‘Nuff said.

That through all of the COVID and racial issues, I still try really hard to practice the Golden Rule and see the good in others, however challenging that may be sometimes.

That the “critic voice” in my head is not nearly as powerful as the “balanced and centered” voice.

I’m really tired of checking these boxes about myself.

The incredible musicianship of Steve and Miles Brown. Thank you for taking me back 30 years with your incredible music.

Steve Brown – my professor,
my mentor and my friend.

That I hope one day (probably not in my lifetime), people can accept that we’re all equal. God (or the universe, or science, or whatever you believe) made us all different for a reason – to learn from and respect each other as equals.

And so it is. ✝️🔯☪️🕎☯️☮️💟
