I'm not a radical, but the concept of radical gratitude seems right to me. How can we be radically grateful for the many blessings in our lives? What would happen if we embraced an attitude of radical gratitude daily, hourly, by the minute?
Let's find out. Together.
I'm going to list things I'm grateful for...big things and small things, urgent things and prayerful things, insignificant things and mundane things, natural things and man-made things. Things that are important. That I notice. That beckon. That are broken. That work.
Things I am grateful for.
I might use poetry or prose, haiku or one word. There's no right way to be grateful.
Except to be radical.
1. The sound of insects at night.
A sound engineer
Can parse the sounds of insects
at night. I can not.
To me, they sound like
the background radiation
of God's first deep breath.
Now it is your turn. What are you grateful for, right now, in this very moment, as you read this for the first time.
