Giving thanks for what we have
Most thankful for:
Life: As I near my end, even more appreciative;
Family: My own, small in number, but fascinating and loving;
Friends: Again, few in number, but so dear, including some animals and elements of the natural world;
Freedom: So hard won and challenging to maintain (spirit crushers are always about);
OBSERVER: For printing my various letters of opinions and values.
