I am grateful today for the things that I have. I am imagining on this day when the pear trees and daffodils are blooming that I want all the things that I already have. What would it be like to not want another thing?
I can tell you that I have learned that few of the things that I buy have brought me serenity. The exception has been the boat. It too has been a serenity breaker at times though. Painting the hull, getting it wired for lights, taking down the mast, having multiple cluster f**ks with the rigging--these have sorely tried me. But the boat is like the "fort" I wrote about yesterday. I can think of few other "things" that make me that happy.
I think that I basically have all the things that I want. I am blessed with love, good health, a home, friends both furry and human, and a concious contact with God. All of those are more than enough today.
