happy thanks(ful)giving-

what a wonderful time of year to meditate on
thankfulness and GRATITUDE

(acrylic on canvas, M.ELLIOTT, 2011)
. . .
this time last year i was struggling emotionally and physically through the trauma of a brown recluse spider bite, resigned to spending another day recouping after yet another surgery(!) rather than joining family for fellowship and the usual clamor of pots, pans, and china coming together in a fantastic feast. this year, i will be fulfilling one of my 2011 New Year's Intentions, by participating in the now legendary BLVD BOLT.

(*like i said, 3 surgeries in 3 months, will make you grateful for your two legs and the mobility that those two legs provide
. . . i plan to RUN a road race in gratitude and thanksgiving for the mobility that i have been re-given!)

(*Since 1994, the Boulevard Bolt has grown from 2,500 participants to over 8,700 participants in 2010. Today, the Boulevard Bolt ranks among the largest 5-mile races in the country. More importantly, it has donated $1.6 million to the homeless community in Nashville.)
