giving thanks

last night, after realizing that to steam everything i own would take the better part of this next year, i had another moment. 

so i gathered up my bedding and took it to the cleaners. 

then i put on the largest cable-knit sweater i own, drank in the fresh fall air and was reminded why it is that i feel most hopeful in the fall: something about that crisp air and the changing of the leaves. and that too--that was a moment.

so i gathered up all my moments--collected them and gave thanks for each and every one.
