Because one day of Thanksgiving isn't enough (5 of 7)  
Today, I'm thankful for nature, and its inescapableness. There are times, of course, when that's harder to appreciate -- that swelteringly hot summer day, or the bone chilling blustery wet winds of the shoulder seasons -- but I love the rhythms of the seasons, and coming to know how they take shape year to year in a place that I've lived long enough to start to see some micro local patterns: where the shadow keeps the grass greener, or the long autumn sunlight filters through fluffed up seed pods, richly golden.

I'm grateful for the way that even in this most human of environments, living in the city, nature makes herself known, in small ways and large, always offering perspective and solace.
 
 
I'm feeling: thankfulthankful

I am grateful that the sun waning is almost over although the cold has just begun.
