This is the first (small and spontaneous) in an ongoing series. It feels So Good to be grateful for the many gifts each day (each moment) offers us. The more we choose to focus our thoughts/feelings/energies towards gratitude and appreciation the better we feel and the more open we are to receive those gifts. Give it a try!
Like any smart writer, I own ‘Bird by Bird’ now, which I fittingly picked up here in Marin. I’m savoring it, bit by bit, picking it up when I need a new dose of Anne’s medicine for the trials of life, which she reminds us, with wit and mirth, are a necessary part of the journey.
When Jeph and I decided we wanted to return to the Bay Area, again, and chose Marin County instead of SF or the East Bay, it was both exciting (because we love the area and it’s familiar to us) and intimidating (because we didn’t know Marin well at all.)
