Even though we cannot see clearly how it's going to turn out, we are still called to let the future into our imagination.
-Joanna Macy

We're big on dreams. Pete and I look at each other a lot, and say stuff like, "Who woulda dreamed?" Well, the truth is we have dreamed this life up and the price we pay for being on the cutting edge or living life on the ledge is we must as Joanna Macy said, 'let the future into our imagination.'

It's a new MONday, a new week begins and a simple practice continues with gratitude and appreciation to open up the future yet to be. Here are 10 things in my life for which I give thanks:

1. Thanks for the possibilities of collaboration in Oregon.

2. Thanks for the internet that allows me access to a virtual and possible in-the-flesh community.

3. Thanks for misunderstandings that clear up.

4. Thanks for slow yet real reconnections.

5. Thanks for avocado and tomato sandwiches (ymmmmmy!)

6. Thanks for kitty kisses.

7. Thanks for volunteer potato plants in bloom in the compost. (lucky food)

8. Thanks for the oodles of frogs that come to be with us on the sink, in the garden on the table.

9. Thanks for late bloomers.

10. Thanks for Pete.

What are the things and who are the people on your thank you list?
