Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
Today’s quote by OCTAVIA BUTLER, which now has me reading about her in Wikipedia and wanting to read some of her sci fi. Thank you, gratefulness team!
Lots of posts already today – this question doubtless resonates with those on us on the gratefulness site 🙂
A site worth connecting with:
Greater Good In Action
I think I’ve made a lot of little changes in how I do things during the lockdown. My mind has been open to ways of doing things differently, as so much of the world around me has changed. New container [from my cupboard] for the foody garbage on my kitchen counter etc etc
Starting to bloom, 2 yrs after planting 🙂
Answering questions on UCSB’s Science Line.
What I am doing
Quite well, thank you. I also have an online therapist to whom I can post concerns. My immediate need for her disappeared with her first piece of advice, but it’s fun to have someone there, just for any little concerns I have, for a couple more months.
Welcome to the ‘West,’ Diane. And enjoy the thrift shops – quite a bit of my furniture is from them. I need to get the seat re-caned on one of my chairs, but I’ve had the chair for several years now. – And, thanks for the Prayer Tues reminder!
Thanks, Mike S, for the great zoom. Maybe we can have another one.
Yogananda’s book had less of an influence on me than the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, which is why I visited Kali in Kohlkata when I visited India, on a trip mostly with my daughter, whose travel guide said not to tour India alone. I was glad to be the available person to accompany her 🙂
Hasta luego –
Congrats, Carla – I’m impressed!
Dear dcdeb – you can answer questions on Quora – a scientist suggested that to me. It’s fun and useful, and the questions cover all areas, not just science.
Did you change your picture, Pilgrim, or are you another Pilgrim? 🙂
But you give to many of them, so that adds up to lots of giving, Christine 🙂
Mine too, DeVonna! 🙂
Wow, Holly in Ohio – I’m impressed – congrats
“The idea of a ‘next’ is rather exhausting.” – thanks, Howie –
Oh, thank you, Diane – hooray for Julian of Norwich. She of the hazelnut. I’ve saved her wonderful quote, from you.
Ooh – a bit like my ancestor who came over from England in the mid 1800’s – his branch of the family name [Greenwood] will die out with my brothers, but my granddaughters carry his genes. My claim is just to be related to people who came over on Penn’s boat. It’s not clear that anyone will care about my ancestry. My daughter is childless, and my son doesn’t care. He has bundles of inlaws. But I hope to have the old family photos and such in decent order whe...
