out of bed

I am something like giddily grateful to still be here this morning. Alive, awake. Filled with gifts and abundance, blessings beyond my capability to imagine. Considering all the pranks and flat-out grave stupidities along the way.

These two quotes from Robert Aitken spoke to me over the weekend, and are worth sharing:

“The biggest joke in the universe is that there is nothing to depend upon. When you see that joke, then you are free to get up when the alarm clock goes off.”

“You will find that mountains, rivers, and the great earth itself are not separate from your act of rolling out of bed.”
