Blessed and Lucky

It's customary to place your hands together and bow your head slightly to give thanks in many cultures. I think it's fast approaching one of those "universal symbols" of appreciation. Even if you don't speak the language, the moves and the sentiment sort of translate themselves. (Hey, it beats "flipping the bird," right? Which, I guess, is another one of those "universal symbols" but that's a blog for another day.)

I'm feeling rather blessed and lucky lately myself. Things are starting to get together again, my house is getting in order, my car is getting fixed. On the whole, it's starting to feel like a bit of an uptick around here, even though I really feel like I need a haircut again and we're not at one hundred precent, it still feels like we're headed from darkness into light.

Light, light, light. Ah yes, light. It's the one thing I'm most thankful for, I'd guess, being a photographer and all. Light makes everything good and it's sometimes even nice when you get to step into it yourself.

Just don't forget to bow once you get there.

Until next time...
