Glad Heart

20140525-225131-82291545.jpgEveryday I wake and walk this intriguing earth I am filled with wonder and gratitude. Gratitude that I wake, that I breathe, that I dwell in a form with presence of mind, with senses to absorb and take part in the beauty of life. Yesterday I was grateful for the company of good, honest men and women. Some graced with the wisdom of age others an understanding of the treachery of commercialism seeking to live a life beyond the yoke of an empty, greedy god of coin. I had the opportunity to bury a hatchet that has long caused grievous wound to myself and the community I move in and celebrate with feasting, wine, laughter and dancing. Today, I am grateful for the wind, although cold now, that rushes through the hillside of trees, a great ocean current carrying leaves off to dance and play. I am grateful for the gift of words that I can draw pictures full of sensory flavour that others may taste of my sated gratitude. Living in this way brings great happiness to me and, I believe, those around my glad heart.

    Your attitude is deeply affecting, to be filled with wonder and gratitude like this. Thank you for sharing this, it is a very beautiful thing.

    • Thank you, both wonder and gratitude are of vital importance to me. To see the world with fresh and open eyes, to feel, to recognise the beauty of life with a grateful heart and mind, that is living for me 🙂
