"Gracias a la vida" / Summer sky near the Salish Sea

"When you look back on a lifetime and think of what has been given to the world by your presence, your fugitive presence, inevitably you think of your art, whatever it may be, as the gift you have made to the world in acknowledgment of the gift you have been given, which is the life itself. That work is not an expression of the desire for praise or recognition, or prizes, but the deepest manifestation of your gratitude for the gift of life."
 - Stanley Kunitz

Thanks so much to whiskey river for the quote for today.

It has occurred to me that my blog is nothing if not an ongoing expression of gratitude.
