the way the light
begins to fall
in the kitchen
also tells me
it is August
* * *
My gratitude journal is overflowing, and I’ve almost reached 500 blessings on my way to One Thousand Gifts. I buy notebooks made from recycled paper, and there are not that many blessings per page, as I am keeping the current notebook nearby and often noting those everyday-wonderful-things, without putting my glasses on to write.
I can see how blessings become poems and poems become blessings.

Thank you, Debbie, for your kind thoughts.
Thank you for sharing the list technique for writing ideas, Ellen. You’ve inspired me to aim for a list of 100 by the end of August!
Hi Marylin, Hope you enjoy the process. This sort of flowed naturally from Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts.
Now that you mention “the list technique” I remember lessons too.
Yes the light does change with the seasons. Usually in a quiet moment I notice this. 🙂
Dear Maria, Thank you and blessings
