Applied to my personal existence, gratitude starts with my simplest joys; a good book and a cup of tea. But that quickly pulls me to the macro, and I have to say I am immensely grateful to be living in world where most people see equality as a benchmark and strive for a just and humane world. No joke, that’s huge and I could go on. The problem is that this approach places my family and indoor plumbing somewhere in the middle. Maybe I should start in the middle with my wonderful family, work my way out to the whole planet, and finish up with a good book and a cup of tea.
