What an honor. What an honor to be alive at this time in history. The oak tree I am under, the birds that are singing, the grasses that are growing, the rocks and soil – all are here right now as I am. We make up the present Earth community in our woods, a woods we share. To be so honored brings on a strong need for appreciation and for thankfulness. For 76 years I have lived a luxurious lifestyle. All my basic needs have been met. I have done work I love. I have the honor of all the plants and fellow animals that have graced my life. I have human friends and loved ones that surround me. I have a body that has functioned, while not perfectly, extremely well. It is a true honor to be here, now. It is an honor to say thank you.
