The beach

I got to go to the beach early today for a walk and was struck suddenly by a feeling of gratitude.

I decided to take a moment to think about the things I was grateful for at that moment.

  1. Ball and socket and hinge joints that still (for the most part) work fairly well
  2. A sunny, 30 degree day in February in Maine
  3. The Public Way #1 that allowed me to get to the water even though the tide was up to the wall and occluding the stairs
  4. The oldest child that was watching the youngest child so that I could leave with some peace of mind
  5. The ocean, that connects me so immediately with my grandmother, who took me there so often when I was little

Life is good.
