Today, I'm thankful for: a day off. Rules of Civility. Remembering to be thankful for what I have presently, and not only what I might have in the future. A few hours well spent at The Library for the Performing Arts (and its large Sesame Street toys, which sit with the staff.) One of Franz Beyer's cadenzas. New headphones. Kale and spinach pasta salad with artichoke hearts and mocha iced coffee with almond milk. Grocery lists that come together almost instantly. Weekend plans, half-made.
