Grateful for warm autumn days where people still go to the beach...not to see whales, PJ.

For walks at the sea, where out there- nature is raw...always feel connected, or more so...

PJ, walks by water, big or small, is calming to the soul and refreshes the senses.

I am grateful this morning for family that grows closer as we all grow older. There comes a time when we all support each other and no longer analyze the paths the others chose to take.

And for blueberry pancakes, it's good to have blueberry pancakes on a Sunday morning.

I am grateful for my 5 day vacation to attend a music festival with my brother's family. I love the time I get to spend with my nieces, especially with music involved.

For the sharp, fresh air in the hills when I go a-drivin'.

No whales.

Grateful for autumn and moose. They go together, I think.

PJ, a moose is the Canadian version of a land whale, I think....well, I made that up but I think it is possible.

Land whales- I see the truth of it. Now it all seems so simple.

I did not post images- as there are prices, but still! WTH?? Type 'moosewhale' into a search engine, and of course there are results.

Tonight I feel a natural peace in my soul hitherto not experienced. It will not last of course- but welcome. I am grateful for the Burns Unit, for the counsellors in the Recovery Program and the myriad of professional and others who have thus been part of my journey- which continues to unfold.

I still feel the need to break the surface tension of profound statements by writing something absurd. Please take note, Ann

Whales evolved from small aquatic hoofed ancestors - Not ...

blogs.discovermagazine.com notrocketscience 2010/05/07 whales-ev...

May 7, 2010 - According to molecular evidence, the closest living relatives of whales are, quite surprisingly, the artiodactyls, a group of hoofed mammals that includes deer, cows, sheep, pigs, giraffes, camels and hippos.

Might that list include Moose , or is it plural meese ?

^^^^



My head hurts.

I am grateful for another warm day by the lake, and a donkey named "Jack" who likes the apples I fetch for him (from the wild crab apple tree nearby).

Have you ever looked a donkey square in the eye? It makes them smile.
