September 21 Rain

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can’t do a handstand–
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said–
I’m just not the same since there’s rain in my head.

Rain, by Shel Silverstein

Today I am thankful for …

  1. a roof over our heads that is not *knock on wood* leaking.
  2. being happily contented to sit in the rain and listen to great live music with friends.
  3. for the woman who sat next me, a brain cancer survivor, smiling and laughing and living so out loud.

For what are you thankful?

  1. Lots I am thankful for

    This week its
    1) For the little child, in all of us, nudging us gleefully to all thats true.

    2) For that beautiful smile, that always shines through, clearing the deepest, densest clouds of blue.

    3) For this life force, the fountain of delight,
    in me, around me, which lives,breathes, talks, everything thats right.

  2. Today I am thankful for:

    1) Low gray clouds and 70 degree weather while the AC is out in our building.
    2) Getting into a book enough so that when I am not reading it I wonder what will happen with the characters next.
    3) Friends who believe in my abilities enough to suggest me to others for creative projects.

  3. This warm early fall Monday, I am thankful for:

    1) Sunny moments, and rainy ones, entangled, because without the one, we lose the joy of the others, and vice versa.

    2) A partner who haw patience with my obsessions, insanities, and blindness

    3) The quiet moments to actually stop and think of my thanks.

  5. Today – besides actually having the time to breathe and do this for once – I am thankful for:

    1) The little distractions that make an intense Monday a little lighter

    2) Voices – the real ones, not the ones in my head 😉

    3) The afternoon sun coming in through the window
