OOPS … this was supposed to be posted yesterday. I guess my brain is a mess right now!

Today is what I consider a “day off”. What that means is that I don’t have work until 5:30, when LOTR begins. I’m okay with that. I’m grateful to be employed. I’m more grateful to work with colleagues I enjoy so very much. I’m grateful that I can go on a walk before the rehearsal. I’m grateful for feet that can take long walks and for the camera that will accompany me.

I like my life.

I thank you, God, for most this amazing day! (I’d print E. E. Cummings words — I redid his name with caps after reading about his name — here but I believe they are still under copyright and I don’t like to go there.)
