Gratitude doesn’t always come naturally. I have to stop sometimes, remind myself, look around, realize, feel it, absorb it. This is like writing. Stop. Remind yourself to look around. Realize what you’re writing, feel it and absorb it. Feel grateful. And move ahead in that space.
Stuck. Stuck. Stuck stuck. Stuck. Start with, “I remember…” and go from there.
What day is it? It’s today. Today is the day to begin.

A very little key will open a very heavy door.

“How long is forever?
Sometimes just one second”
