    (First I thought you wrote “clean streets” and I thought, “hey me too! I am so grateful for clean streets!” I never knew that I loved clean streets until I visited NYC. I had no idea a place could be so filthy. Country girl in me is not used to so much litter. I didn’t understand why people who seemed to love their city so much could take such rotten care of it. I loved Austin so much more when I came back.)

    So my grateful list:
    -Clean streets
    -moments of inspiration
    -ginger chews
    -time to ferment things
    -vests
    -friends I can kiss, and cuddle, and flirt and hold them on my lap and nuzzle in their neck
    -living on the third floor where I am eye level with tree branches and can watch the hummingbirds and chickadees and squirrels argue
    -backpacks that clasp around my waist and chest and make me feel like i’m in a perpetual hug
    -my book the “flavour bible”
    -my scooter, especially for costing only $125 to tune up and $3 to fill up
    -seattle
    -lesbians
    -karyn
    – my mom and dad (not sure where that came from, but i’ll honour that)
    -people who by just being themselves inspire me to be a more compassionate and open hearted person (people like you)

    In April, I made a gratitude list to carry in my purse. From time to time, my hand would come across it while digging for some other, less delightful treasure. It was a reminder to focus on the good things. I believe that list to be lost now…and know that some items have lost their importance, replaced by better things.

    Before you posted this, I had decided to come up with a new list. I still haven’t taken the time, but I promise, the next time I feel small and quiet and alone, I will remember to make my new list….I can start by telling you how grateful I am for you.
