Gratitude. Appreciation. Praise.
Please join me in a weekly pause to appreciate people, places & things.
On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for things found:
A Quote (just when needed)
"Cultivate your own capabilities, your own style. Rabbits don't fly. Eagles don't swim. Ducks look funny trying to climb. Squirrels don't have feathers. Stop comparing. There's plenty of room in the forest."
A Literary Project (that's meaningful and unique)
StreetBooks, the work of artist and writer Laura Moulton, is a bicycle-powered mobile library offering books to the homeless. No questions, no money, no pressure. Read the news story here.
A Blog (that makes sense, and has fun)
Blurb is a Verb, by author Sarah Pinneo, explores adventures in book publicity.
Fresh Food (and not just zukes)
This week I am munching through strawberries, cucumbers, tomatoes and beans, courtesy of Gathering Together Farm. The system of CSA — Community Supported Agriculture — was pioneered in the 1970s, and re-energized in the 1990s (by Denver Urban Gardens' DeLaney Community Farm and others). After so many years, thank goodness, fresh, organic, community-driven food distribution is now mainstream.
While the rest of the nation swelters in triple-digit heat, the central Oregon Coast has endured another unseasonably cool, gray, damp summer. Now, at the end-of-July, I'm wearing summer skirts in a 70-degree heat wave.
It's Thankful Thursday! What's on your list?
