Gratitude Friday

1. Only one more week until Ringo gets his final round of shots and then we can start walking him and taking him to daycare, wearing him out and getting a break from him. I love that little dude, but I’ve got a lot of other things going on too.

sleepyringo022. A good therapist. Her ability to see, her willingness to help, her wisdom and compassion. It doesn’t hurt that we are a lot alike so she’s able to help me both laugh at myself and see my worth more clearly.

3. Crackers, cheese, and a crunchy apple.

4. Realizing I’ve made a mistake, and being able to fix it.

5. New books. Wish I could spend the weekend reading, but I have yoga teacher training.

Bonus joy: Tiny beautiful things and good friends that make it easier to not give up.

Type Rider II: The Tandem Poetry Tour, a Kickstarter Project

Maya Stein is one of my favorite living poets. She has a Kickstarter project that is a mix of some of my favorite things, “A pair of poets riding a tandem bicycle and towing two typewriters 1,400 miles from Boulder, Colorado to Beloit, Wisconsin, building tiny libraries and promoting poetry, community, a love of reading, and the spirit of collaboration along the way.” There are five days left to fund this project. May it be fully funded and of great benefit to everyone lucky enough to be involved.
