246 – Could we be richer?


This morning was just crisp and clear and still and beautiful. I wanted to drink in the air the way I can remember drinking the cold, clear, clean water from the head of the Whanganui River. To drink from there today probably comes at some risk, but then the water nurtured part of my soul that hasn’t been touched in the same way for a very long time.

I looked at the vegetables – glowing with a sheen of dew – and then back at the house – full of books, music, art, laughter, and love – food and comfort in abundance. I got in the car and we headed off for work – we have jobs, and a car to get there. Our jobs are stressful but they are mostly safe, clean, and dry.

At lunch time I took a walk and looked back to the sun. So much to be grateful for.

Even the ginkgo trees are starting to give away free gold.

Manifesto
01. Every day is a fresh new day.
29. Every day eat, drink, rest, work, exercise, play, love, create for your own good. And the good of others.
48. Every day there are things you canít change. You can change the way you think about them and deal with them.
