Hello Friday! It’s a chilly, overcast morning in central Kentucky and I am grateful to be alive right now. I’m grateful for a life that includes strong, hot coffee in the mornings and popcorn on the couch with my spouse at night, three of the sweetest cat companions I could ask for, long walks with my best buddy, Grail, National Public Radio, upbeat and inspiring Facebook posts, my spiritual community, the best friends, travel, bicycles, bicycle travel, safe travels, trees, my family, good books, Dubliner cheese, endless opportunities to do and be better and more and live a life I cherish and enjoy. I’m grateful for National Parks and community parks, greenspace wherever it happens, art and design in endless variety, color, color and more color. I’m grateful for connection and concern and support and all the ways it shows up in my life. What are you grateful for today?
