Thanksgiving List: 2009

As Thanksgiving comes around, I try to spend a little time actually thinking about what I am thankful for (radical as that idea may seem). So, here is the list I’m coming up with this year:

  • A great life partner, Eva.
  • Health.
  • Health Insurance (at least for now).
  • Food.
  • Shelter.
  • Living in a great city (Portland, Oregon).
  • Multiple sources of meaning in my life.
  • The ability to discover, or rediscover, skills.
  • The ability to hope for a better future.
  • The ability to live satisfied in the moment.
  • Great Portland food carts.
  • A large and strong community.
  • Being able to use my voice for good.
  • Having reached another Thanksgiving.
