It’s Friday again, an occasion for gratitude in and of itself for those still employed, as I am.  A whole weekend to look forward to.  Right now I’m outside waiting for sunrise, eating a crisp, sweet apple.  Thanks!!!

I am a really lucky guy. I’ve made mistakes in my life and generally I’ve been forgiven for nearly all of them. I have a very comfortable lifestyle, I’m happily married to a woman I hope to spend the rest of my life with, our son has so far turned out to be a decent young man. I like what I do for a living, and I love that I have time to work on a PhD and teach as an adjunct in a field I’m even more passionate about.

I’m aware that much of my good fortune has been due to factors out of my control, and I try not to forget that.

My pretty good view of the Milky Way is gonna get even better!

 

Those were the days!  But at least there’s still blue sky in a few places . . . the scent of trees and bushes after a rain - the sun breaking out.

I’m thankful for West Texas, with some of the darkest night skies in the US.  The Milky Way looks like a million stars in a caravan.
