Giving Thanks!

Window to My Heart Β© 2010 Bo Mackison

All the windows of my heart I open to the day. ~ John Greenleaf Whittier

I have much for which to be thankful. People who care about me, love me as I am. All the necessaries and many of the un-necessaries, too. A life filled with creativity and meaningful work. The big things. And, yes, the little things, too.

There is so much that opens my heart and fills my life with meaning. For that, I am immensely and deeply grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
