something I am grateful for today

 the tender care of my physiotherapists

I especially noted it this morning when I developed a cough during treatment and they went to get me some water... there is something spiritually serene about the ways in which they minister to my needs that is actually beautiful. Strange how they can treat me like a Ming vase while also trying to force my body to do things that bodies can't do -- sometimes in the same instant!

the classic sound of 50s and early 60s Blue Note

every so often I come back to these recordings as I am doing now... archetypal and definitive, comforting yet still revealing new depths years later

two weeks in August without putting the air conditioner on -- I mean, I am very grateful we have AC, but also for those times when it isn't required, eh?

 standing here after a week of perfect weather, looking toward what is forecast to be another perfect week -- I need to remind myself that times like this can still happen here, it's too easy to forget... enjoying getting my quota of walks in!

Plastics -- for some reason, I have become very conscious of them today. What an amazing invention. Pay attention to the plastic objects you use, and notice how seldom you can think of some other material they could be made out of which would do the same job as well as plastic does.
