Daily Grateful: The Gift

January 1, 2014

A wonderful friend of mine is a carpenter, a craftsman, and an artisan and he has built something interesting that I doubt anyone else you know has built. He’s built his own casket. Now, he’s a young man of 74 or so, spry, adept, and intelligent, (see video below) and one of the most humble people I’ve ever met. He has a variety phrases carved into this final resting place he’s built for himself, and one of my favorites is “Every day is a gift.” I took that thought to the next level. Here’s to a happy, healthy, mindful new year!!

Daily Grateful - 1.1.2014New Beginnings. Here’s a video I did of my friend releasing a Barred owl that another friend found and that he rehabilitated (another of his many talents is rehabilitating injured woodland creatures, especially raptors. That’s me laughing in the background–one of the better moments of my life. Enjoy. 🙂

Yours in mental hygiene,
