I intended this to be a list of all that I am thankful for. I did write it out as such and thought long and hard about each and everything as I wrote. Doing so was a great exercise and one that brought tears to my eyes when I realized how damn lucky I am. But the list became long and very personal, I'm not really comfortable sharing it here, in its entirety.
I do want to say, however, as I wrote I realized my list was built upon one, completely random incident: I had the luck to be born in a part of the world that rarely sees natural disasters and is largely free of life-threatening violence. This is at the very base of all that I am thankful for.
I spend a great deal of time and energy photographing and writing about plants and gardens. Energy that, if I had been born in another time or place, I might spend just trying to stay alive. What a luxury! Through those photos and words I've developed many online friendships, and have a wonderful group of readers. Sharing my love of plants with you, and hearing your thoughts in return, makes my heart happy. Thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers, Happy Peaceful Day to the rest of the world.
Thank you for reading!
