Gratitude


At this past Saturn day and night events I was once again reminded about how much we have to be grateful for, especially those of us that have the opportunity to live in America. Yes, I know, things are rather challenging in the "land of the free" at the moment. However, there are still many things to be grateful for...like the gleeful chirping of the birds, the camphoraceous, earthy aroma of the white sage in the garden or out on the hillside. Even the ever present nemesis, for they keep us alert and on our toes.

Greg and I have been organizing all the papers for the hearing on Thursday evening in Van Nuys, California. We along with a fair amount of the neighbors will "speak for the trees" and for the earth. When one assesses how small the lot that this developer wants to build his monstrosity on and the beauty of the large oak trees the situation looks so clear. Yet, the developer and the City of LA will be seeing a different scenario. The silver strand here is meeting the neighbors and aligning for a cause.

The sweet little felt heart above was created for me by My, one of the winners of the Handmade Tag on this blog. A beautiful, simple gesture of the heart. Thank you so very much to each of you.

Thank you so very much! I'll be posting a picture of the trees so we can all visualize the landscape remaining intact.
