sundry gratitudes on the tuesday before thanksgiving (yes, this is the dr. jekyll to my previous mr. hyde post)



for candlelight (and starfish.)


for a hawk who shared his feather :)


for a new journal to fill with heart and soul and dreams...


for footstools (and feet.)


for early morning walks in the garden and the smell of damp pine needles.

for hot tea on a cool november day.

for bird song.

for the white tip on my dog's tail.

for warm stockings.

for black-winged birds against a true blue sky.

for writing it all down.


for you.

dear girl,
i love the light and dark of you. the rising up and letting go. the strength and courage, the tender and tired. the willing, always willing part of you that lights the darkest part of me.

The inspiring workshop with Flora is still with me but like you, life has its own ideas of the directions to follow. I inhale and exhale touching the center of myself letting go of all but this moment. Your blog is beautiful, real and touches me. Take care.

How beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Being real with both the light and the dark is one of your endearing qualities. And there are many.

So thankful for you {and Emily} as well.

Happy Thanksgiving Leslie.

Hi Cozy,
I love all of these things, particularly the white tip on your dog's tail and I am very fond of the smell of pine needles. I love how you appreciate the simple and wonderful things of life. Gratitude changes our perception of the world for the better.
xoxoxo,
Noelle
