Times have certainly changed in my world. Now I go to the grocery store or the market. There are many farms and markets in Victoria where I can purchase locally grown produce. I am very grateful for the abundance and quality of local food. I am grateful my Mama taught me how to prepare and enjoy a beautiful meal. I am very grateful I have experienced growing my own food. I'd still like to have a little vegetable garden. I am grateful I appreciate and understand the process of planting, nurturing, and harvesting - it applies to so much more in life than feeding oneself. What's on your "grateful" list today?
"The true harvest of my life is intangible - a little star dust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched." ~Henry David Thoreau
Today, I am beginning a daily addition to the blog. It will be known as "WHAT MAKES MY HEART SING". The criteria for 'whatever the object of my affection' is this: I must absolutely LOVE it - not simply LIKE it. It must literally make my heart sing, take my breath away, place an involuntary, uninvited smile on my face, cause me to jump up and down (at least inside), give rise to palpitations, generate a weakness in my knees, or initiate the vapours!!! I hope you see what I mean. I began to consider what sorts of things affect me in this way. Quite a lot of subjects came to mind which produce these 'good vibrations'. I found it rather interesting, so thought I would share one a day. Have you ever thought about what makes your heart sing? I am very grateful I can feel that kind of exquisite emotion.
