Today I am grateful for:
1. Spring semester is almost over and I should soon have more time to write.
2. Another beautiful day.
3. Air conditioning. Geez it's hot today here in the wine country.
4. The way the sun lights up the leaves in the big tree in our backyard as though the tree was a stained glass window.
5. Basil. I just brought home a little basil bush from Trader Joe's and the pungent scent of those lovely green leaves are enough to take me on an olfactory adventure through Italian vistas.
