The peace of the Sacred Grove, the magic that imbues our lives, and the blessing of those who walk with us.

I'm grateful for finding my first amanita muscaria mushrooms, completely by accident! I've wanted to find amanitas for so long! I'm also grateful for Wedgwood Rock, and for being able to share my life with my amazing daughter.

The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
But the heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

I am thankful for those with the courage to rise up against oppression.

I am thankful for service, kindness, and the two little finches dancing in the rain out on my patio.

I am thankful for the love of a most extraordinary cat, who occasionally answers to the name of Cerridwen. We've weathered some storms, she and I. I am also thankful for a healthy place to live as well as my new computer

Today I'm thankful for:
  • my children's school no being invaded by an angry mob,
    the mutineers entered in negotiation,
    civil war did not start today.

Today I'm thankful for being able to visit an otter cub that I was able to help rescue. She's grown a huge amount and is a really feisty little thing who goes by the name of Sophie. I'm also incredibly grateful and blessed to live on the Isle of Skye - I truly could not wish for anything more.

Today I am thankful that although I work on a railway, with all the associated sights and smells of the city, I'm working today at a smaller station where nature can still show itself. The daffodils on the platforms have started to come through, in a room that we very rarely enter, ivy is growing through the closed window, and when I checked the boundry path along the field next door, a Hare popped out to say hello.

These small signs of nature while I'm working make me grateful to be alive :grin:

A good book, some soft music, and a nice glass of scotch...
