Thankful for giving

i am grateful for sunsets 
 for all the small details nature shows me daily
  when i pay attention between sunsets.
some times i carry a camera to remind me of what i have noticed recently. a tidbit of the essence that slowed me down in the first place to take a picture.
i am grateful for paint and muslin, bolts of it and that i am comfortable with a paintbrush in my hand.
grateful for friends, clients that become friends and the people i have not yet met but will meet through the work i do, the color i ad to fabric and grateful for the ideas that come pell mell to me to transform the cloth into something that was not here before. i am  grateful many times daily for smart hands and good air to breathe and eyes that take it all through brand new eyeglasses of increased strength. i recall friends i have known and am grateful to shared the air with them; some are missing and some are gone.  i am grateful for the art pals i have made the last 8 years that share and support imagination and  whose amazing pieces,small treasures really, land in my mailbox doing so make me happy and the post office a more colorful place if just for the moment. 
be well, see well,
aloha, Sonja
