Climb on top of bronchitis.  Set bipolar disorder to the side.  Make room beside sick father and grieving family.  There is time and space for gratitude.  All month I have worked on crafting Christmas and Winter Solstice cards for the gallery.  Today they were received with joy and praise.  My collage, Bad Clowns, is now on their wall awaiting the perfectly twisted mind that will love it.  And tomorrow, when I go to the flea market in What Cheer with my friends, I will have some money to exchange for art fodder and treasures.

Gratitude fed, cannot be crushed.
