Day 22 of Gratitude...it's interesting to see what memories are triggered each time I sit down to write another letter.

I am grateful for your willingness to risk complete insanity by diving into the dark depths of human consciousness with me, and thereby introducing me to a higher state of consciousness. I am grateful for the 12-hour long cafe philosophical debates. I am grateful for your willingness to change your perspective, and argue the other side.

Day 21 of Gratitude....I expected "30 Days of Gratitude" to be consecutive, but I am happy with the slower process, which gives me time to reflect on those who have impacted my life.

When I met you in 1986-1987, I was just beginning my discovery of life outside of the 50 American states. You were a fascinating story-teller, and I will never forget the beaming joy on your face and the love for adventure in your Kiwi voice as you circumnavigated the globe over dinner, pausing only to toast cannibals in Papua New Guinea or collect betting debts from those at the table who doubted your accuracy.

Day 18 of Gratitude

I am grateful for your willingness to stand up for truth and for what you believed in no matter the price. I am grateful for your protection. I am grateful that you accepted my choices even when they fell out of line with popular opinion.

Day 17 of Gratitude

I am grateful you were always game to head out at midnight to hang at swanky downtown clubs. I am grateful for your mind-blowing, limitless creativity. I am grateful for your high-tech savvy. I am grateful to have a friend who is always on the cutting edge of what’s-new, what’s-happening, what’s-cool, and what’s-passé.

Day 16 of Gratitude...Seems like this should be day 30 already.

The questions I ponder are larger than myself now: What is dark matter? I wonder about that everyday now, and it makes my problems feel so small.

Day 15 of Gratitude ... I have more to be grateful for than I realized.

I am grateful that today when I watched the sun rise over the grass covered hill that I was reminded of the pleasant, peaceful, sweet-earth smelling mornings on your farm to go collect the eggs with you. I am grateful for the afternoons shucking peas with you. I am grateful for all the delicious homemade fruit pies you prepared. I am grateful for your whispered “good nights.”

I am grateful to know that you will continue living with passion, courage, and dignity and that you will continue building upon your network of wonderful people. I am grateful for the opportunity to watch you continually travel and along your paths, continue to bless thousands of people with your contagious laughter and warm smile.
