Wishing you all

A Thankful Day

With warm beating hearts

Cool clear minds

Of friends and family

And peace in your souls.


In the quiet of the night I think of what I am thankful for this year. The list is too long to write down. It hasn’t always been that way – or so it seemed. But what you see isn’t always with your eyes. What you see isn’t even always with your heart. It is clarity of seeing the big picture and coming to peace and being thankful and letting go and letting in.

Holy crap… excuse me…

A ghost was staring at me through the window. It was a pale shadow of a large unfortunate bird. Standing next to it was the ghost of a man with dark shaggy hair and a black suit with a skinny tie. He silently mouthed the words “Be thankful Vampire.” Then he took the gruesome form of his own death then smiled then vanished. Oh please spare me the dramatics. I know you’re a ghost. Get over trying to haunt me. It isn’t going to work.

I hate it when he does that. On the other hand, he usually flips me off so I have to be thankful for that.

I AM Thankful,

For each and one of everyone of you

who visits my blog.

I’m thankful for all of you who write

to make me think and laugh and ponder.

I’m thankful for everyone who creates the art I look forward to each day.

I’m thankful for so much,

even sometimes… for a ghost

of the past, present or future.
