I am grateful for the thirty minutes I got to spend in the phone with my friend yesterday before his surgery. It was good to hear his voice, registering the calm acceptance of the situation in his voice, and to be able to offer him support.

I am grateful to have received the news that my friend’s surgery went well. I tried not to worry all day yesterday but my life experience sets me up to anticipate disaster. Disaster averted.

I am grateful for my guitar lesson last night over Zoom. Within the first few minutes I was laughing and enjoying myself. My teacher is really accomplished and willing to work with me on any style. I am starting to see things on the guitar that I never understood before — the interrelationships between chords and scales as well as different chord shapes. Lots to unlock on the fretboard.
