Say thank you today. Even if what you want to thank is big and a bit abstract.
Here are a couple lovely examples of grateful writing from the wonderful and deeply lamented Leslie Harpold. It's nice to think of her in the sort of Heaven she describes.
The Thread that Runs So True (Some of what the web has taught me.)
The web is made of people holding hands for safety muddling through the
mazes of life, love, work, success, failure, and everything in between.
The novel you wished would never end doesn't and peonies bloom year
round. You are encouraged to watch movies from an oversized bathtub.
Thank you everyone for a great year exploring Discardia. Your comments and emails have been so encouraging and I'm really happy with the way I've been able to bring these principles into my life and to share them around the world.
Writing for a whole year on a single topic was a crazy idea and I'm so grateful for the way you've cheered me on and kept me at it. I hope you have projects that blossom this way and get to stretch yourselves too.
You'll probably see posts from me now and then – I've got the Discardian life fully under my skin now and I'm loving it, so I bet I'll have new things to share – but there's no predicting when. Keep me in your feed reader or check back every month and see if inspiration has struck me.
I encourage you all to keep exploring Discardia and finding ways to make your lives richer with less in your way. It's been great to have your voices joining into this grand idea.
And happy discarding!
