NaBloPoMo Gratitude #11

Gratitude. Where to begin? Would it be for a chance to spend forty-eight hours with ten really smart, funny, committed incredible people this weekend learning some things that just might have the possibility of being transformative? Or three hours in the car with a Sweet Honey in the Rock CD that made me cry half the way home on a beautiful late fall aftrenoon for the sheer beauty of it? Or the Martinmas Evensong that I literally pulled in at the last minute to co-officiate this evening? It was quite a weekend package. I think it's going to take some time to sort it all out, downshift back into life. I feel a little like I've been picked up and briskly shaken and set back in place. But it was a good shaking, it moved things around in some important ways. Life is abundant. There is no doubt on that front. That and I have to get some sleep!

Sounds like a great week-end; I hope you'll have time to tell us more.

It really was quite amazing and I hope to have some time to digest and post soon!

I am loving these gratitude posts. So glad for all the gifts of your weekend, and looking forward to hearing more as well.

Which Sweet Honey CD? I have liked them since my ND adviser played their version of "We are Climbing Jacob's Ladder" the first day of an Origen seminar, to illustrate allegorical exegesis. But the only one we own is a children's cd and I'm not sure where the best place to start is.

This one is called "Sacred Ground" and like all of them it is wonderful. We used to see them in concert every year before I moved and I really miss that, they are SO fabulous!
