Things I’m Grateful For Today

Oct 12, 2017Lifestyle

A few things I’m grateful for today.

The unexpected 15-minute nap after work.
This giant clam shell still intact.
The glow of sunlight through the windows in the studio.
The mangroves in the backyard lagoon.
The mist on the mountains.
The fleeting moments just after the sunset.
My home is my island.
Officer Scruffles watching me watching him.
The sound of the shutter on my camera.

What are you grateful for today?
