Grateful

snowy spicebush

Like the spicebush outside my front door tonight, I am feeling a little overwhelmed by the unexpected blessings that have recently descended upon me. Superstition prevents me from publicly detailing the extent of my good fortune, but suffice it to say that none of it could’ve happened without this here blog. Thank you, blog! And thank you friends, kind strangers, and not-so-fickle-fingered fate.

  2. Huzzah for good fortune reaching you, Dave. You’re so tremendously generous with your creativity, your words, and your time — you’re an inspiration to me. I’m glad the Universe is paying some of that back.

  3. Thanks for the good wishes, y’all. Some of you already know I’m going to Britain in May, and that is a big part but not the whole of what prompted this post. I’m sure I will write about each lucky thing here eventually.
