I open to November in the book Living in Gratitude by Angeles Arrien.
Garrison Keillor: List your blessings and you will walk through those gates of thanksgiving and into the fields of joy.
I am grateful Steve is healing from his surgery, and he is awakened in the night from dreams/nightmares of being invaded. I think we need to recognize more fully what it is to have surgery, and what is required in the healing. It takes time to recover. The leaves are falling, sheltering the soil.
May we each shelter and come to equilibrium even when the outside knocks strongly within.
