This morning I am grateful for all of my experience, THAT I experience, for this precious life that I work so hard to be fully in, and for the understanding that trying hard isn’t the way. I am grateful to throw myself into danger, to put myself at risk, to know this is the placeContinue reading “Dude Abides”

Focus. Will. Drive.
This morning I am grateful for heavy, cool showers on a hot and sunny afternoon, being completely interrupted from whatever seemed important at the time. I am grateful for this track, “Athlete” by Christian Löffler; to find music that seems to perfectly express my mood. I am grateful to be a “big picture” thinker, forContinue reading “Focus. Will. Drive.”
This morning I am grateful to witness my own cycle of boredom, distraction, frustration, reaction, grateful to notice this constant craving for something, anything other than the right here, right now. I am grateful to see it for what it is, an addiction to endlessly variable forms of sensation; I’m gratefully watching you now, youContinue reading “Constant Craving”
This morning I am grateful for surfing the waves of opportunity, and for curiosity calling me to take a deep dive below the surface to explore the sea.

Fred, my Partner in Accountability
This morning I am grateful for the three deer just outside the window, watching them leap effortlessly from paddock to paddock, trying to imagine the donkeys or Napoleon doing that. I am grateful for partnership in whatever form it takes, what is it if it isn’t shared. I am grateful for Fred reminding me ofContinue reading “Fred, my Partner in Accountability”
A Tribute to Madness
This morning I am grateful for different iterations of the same behaviour patterns, an opportunity to observe where I am doing the same thing over and over and getting the same result, an opportunity to develop new consciousness and put in something different. I am grateful to work excitedly late into the night, to wakeContinue reading “A Tribute to Madness”
Had It All Along
This morning I am grateful for my friends, for connections that remain over long periods and vast distances. I am grateful for the air-conditioning, it’s hot in Texas! I am grateful for the deep deep pockets of my tool-belt, I love finding new things in there and others that I had forgotten.
This morning I am grateful for space, places to grow and expand into. I am grateful to say yes, to lean powerfully into an uncertain future; scary as it is, I now regard the fear as my compass. I am grateful for words; poetry or prose I pick my proclamations with particularity.
