Today, I’m getting ready to drive across the state to an amazing writing conference.  Still, in the flurry of packing and psyching myself up for three hours in the car (I’m not a fan of the highway anymore), I want to stop, step back, and remember to offer up gratitude to the universe.

Today, I am thankful for:

1. The fall equinox.  This is a time of balance between light and darkness, and it’s always been one of my favorite holidays. (It was last weekend.)

2. Myth.  I’ve been thinking a lot about the myth of Persephone as we head into the darker days, and I am thankful for all of the ancient stories.  They still resonate for me today.

3. The ability to travel to connect with other writers.

What are your three things?
