I'm grateful that the people in my life support my growth artistically and in the garden, and that I have a "bit of earth" to work on, to steward and I hope leave better than I found it.

And I'm so thankful for the Internet, because it gives us access to so much helpful information and to like-minded community. Without it, I would not have learned about permaculture as early as I did. I remember well having to go to the library to learn, and while I love libraries, one had to stumble upon something so revolutionary when the area I live in had not much interest in practical ways of improving the environment or the lives of people in any empowering way. I love how people who work with nature are so giving!

I am grateful for whoever it was that conceived of the rails to trails program where old railroad lines with their railroad grade right of way passages through towns, cities, and country sides get converted into hiking or biking trails.  It was a brilliant use of all that embodied energy already put into shaping the land, not to mention legal property rights that was likely fought with eminent domain issues in some places.  These trails preserve that right of way should there ever be the desire to return to a more railroad dominant transportation system and in the meantime provide an awesome way to travel by non-motorized means safely out of the way of car and truck traffic between towns.

I'm especially grateful that I live within a mile of one that is 94 miles long!  I use it all the time with my bike as it's become my main form of transportation for most trips going about 15 miles in either direction, which is most trips I make since all the towns are right on the old rail line.

I'm also very grateful the road crew is almost done with a job that has closed down both the trail and two roads that all converge at one point.  I didn't realize how much I appreciate being able to travel through that spot until I couldn't.  Even by bike there was no good other way through that zone due to geography.  The detour was a few miles extra travel on roads with no real shoulder to ride on.  Thankfully one could usually cut directly through the construction zone on weekends or evenings at least when the crew wasn't working.

I am grateful for the guidance I received to have a fire in the garden and to allow myself to sit and enjoy it's warmth and the flames that are mesmerising and  entrancing. Om Shanthi 🙏

I also am grateful for the birds. It seems like I'm doing all the feeding but they are such a presence I guess they feed me as well.
Grateful for some time by the ocean.
Grateful for some self-honesty about last year's "dilemna" which I would have going until next year without the amazing respite of the warm summer in-between.

I am grateful today for the rain and for that matchless first sip of coffee.
I am grateful for my husband and "children" (24y. & 30y.).  We have fun, and we roll with the punches.
I'm so thankful for my pups and fresh raspberry pancakes and ice cubes in my drinks on a hot summer day.

I'm so grateful for our local community. These folks are so generous with their friendship, labor, time, skills, knowledge, so willing to help, share their tools/ equipment, 'secret' fishing & foraging spots... My heart simply overflows.
