GIVE THANKS ALWAYS

I miss San Fran…well for the short time I was there -- the beauty is evident on every street, every corner. I miss all of the determined little weeds that grow through the sidewalks. The gorgeous graffiti art decorating an otherwise boring wall. And the amazing door numbers in the city.

Here’s our first gathering. A potluck. And I remember that Shayna had brought Tabouleh, and I thought what?!. I was just so happy to have a houseful of friends. Everyone eating, drinking, laughing. The record player spinning old tunes like Otis Redding. Lit candles flickering against smiling faces. Dogs underfoot, hoping for a handout.

My favorite was this sidewalk on Haight Ashbury. I loved it. Someone wrote: "Hey you, yes you walking. You are beautiful. Give thanx always."

Because here, everyone, even inanimate things have something to say.
