Days of Grace: 71/365

When I started this Grace in Small Things project, I hoped I could be consistent for a month. Now, I’m well into my first quarter of posting. Some days, I sit at my desk and think there is nothing in my life I feel grateful for at that moment. Other days, I feel like my list is more accurately slanted toward “cool things” or “things I like” vs. things I’m grateful for. Mostly, this project has caused me — a pessimist by nature — to reflect for a couple of minutes a day on things that are working in my life.

  1. The Grace in Small Things project
  2. Schmutzie, for starting it
  3. The parts of my job I really like, especially interviewing really smart people about their work and using my brain to put the pieces together for a complex article
  4. The creativity of my friend, Helen Young of EnZed Design. I’ve relied on her to design my projects for more than a decade, and I can always count on her to deliver.
  5. Denver’s Westword magazine. Even as its footprint shrinks, Westword continues to deliver top-notch reporting in an era where few media outlets bother to dig below the spin.
