Nov. 25th, 2004 10:01 am Gratitude

On this Thanksgiving Day I have much to be thankful for.

I am most eternally thankful to have found my soulmate, boyziggy. He proposed to me last Thanksgiving Day and we were married two months ago today. In all this crazy, hostile world, two misfits could not be better suited for each other. I will love him forever.

I am thankful for my continued good health. As my mother often reminds me, without health we have nothing.

I am thankful for my job. I have a great, easy-going boss and an enjoyable job (web development for UCSF) which pays well, is normally low-stress, and an easy commute from my current apartment.

I am thankful for my home. For all I have complained about it, our apartment has a reasonable rent (for SF), decent amenities, and is in a good location for us.

I am thankful for my family. For all of our differences in philosophy, we still get along reasonably well. I am thankful that they are in good health.

I am thankful for my friends. No person is an island, and it takes a particularly patient person to put up with my quirks.

I am thankful for my adopted city of San Francisco. Here I can feel free to be myself, to express and act on my radical views, to nourish my body and soul with the produce of the Earth.

If you are taking a moment during your holiday weekend to read this entry, perhaps you could leave a note saying what you are most thankful for.

And good geocaching buddies.
And Emmett.
And everyone who's supported me through the whole car episode.
And my two cats.
And the fortune that's allowed me to do the kind of work I want to be doing.
