Good morning all! And what a morning it is at the ‘Edge. I feel compelled to write a Ten Things of Thankful post today. What is it that “compels” me to write? What is the little thing, masquerading as spontaneous creativity, that suddenly has me “needing” to write a TToT? That’s just it. It isn’t one thing. It’s been a series of events; somewhat of a snowball of a morning. I began by checking e-mail. As soon as I open it, I’m completely overwhelmed – when the hell am I going to delete some of these?! So I click on a couple….yeah, yeah, yawn, whatever…then I come to the tweet notification e-mail. That’s when I thought I heard a knocking on the door. Thank you Kerry! It was your tweet February 5 that started the ball rolling. ToT numero uno :D.
TToT 2 – Sense of humor. This morning’s title was inspired by an event at my new gym last week. I’d been pedaling easily 20 minutes on the recumbent bike and at a pretty good clip. Put my hands on the handles to get my heart rate. Holding, holding until the following message started scrolling across the screen: “Heart rate not detected. Resistance being reduced”. I laughed out loud.
TToT 3 – the Wakefield Doctrine. (sliced bread?, whatev)
TToT 4 – Six Sentence Stories. I know Kristi, as host of the TToT, can relate when sometimes I wonder, “why did I agree to do this?” lol. And then I remember all the wonderful reasons, like meeting new writers, reading new writers, expanding my world just a little bit more. And the regulars? Damn! I continue to be so totally impressed by the writing skills and the commitment and the…everyone is a pleasure to know 🙂
TToT 5 – Good health.
TToT 6 – Technology!!! Yeah, it’s got it’s negatives but I sure am glad to have access.
TToT 7 – People in my life to tell me the “hard stuff”.
TToT 8 – Sunshine.
TToT 9 – Music.
TToT 10 – I woke up today. ‘nough said. Life is now. Today. Only. Ready set, go.
