My gratitude list this week is all about beauty and poetry, and who could not be grateful for those things in our lives? Linking up with Laurel Regan’s AlphabetSalad today to share gratitude and happiness.
♥ That an old, abandoned amusement park from my youth has been opened as a city park on 120 acres on the shore of Narragansett Bay.
♥ For local arts programs like the one we saw at a historic mill: poetry readings from Poe and Tennyson interspersed with chamber music from a live group.
♥ Finishing the first work project I took on since my wrist surgery.
♥ Having not one but two of my haiku published online on the same day.
♥ Lunch with a friend and a tea date at a lovely tearoom with two other friends.
♥ Joining a couple of Zentangle groups on Facebook and feasting on the beautiful work posted there.
♥ Buying some colored pens and pencils so I can try coloring my Zentangles!
♥ Rediscovering my love for poetry. While my husband was bowling the other night, I read Louise Gluck’s Averno and half of a collection by Mary Oliver; now I want to go back to my poetry collection and read more!
♥ Spending a cold, rainy/snowy Sunday afternoon practicing and learning some new tangles.
♥ Buying prepared lasagna at Whole Foods and having an easy dinner in front of the TV and watching “Columbo” and one of my favorite “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” episodes on MeTV.
