Thanksgiving 2015: 21 Things I'm Grateful For

The realm of gratitude is boundless.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are 21 things I'm grateful for:
1. Dirt (if you like to eat, start by liking dirt)
2. Rain (dirt + rain + seeds + care = food)
3. Our home garden (not yet illegal except if you want to grow food in your front yard)
4. Frugality
5. Pirate movies
6. Joe Montana to Dwight Clark: The Catch. For those who don't understand this as something to be grateful for--it's a mystical thing.
7. Bicycles
8. Friends
9. Homemade cookies
10. Sunsets (photo taken from Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park campsite overlooking the Pacific)
11. BBQs
12. Golden Gate Bridge
13. Wu-shu
14. Leonardo Da Vinci (my brother at Da Vinci's tomb in France)
15. Hawaii
16. Camping in national parks (Glacier National Park, during our recent camping trip)
17. Photos that remind us that youth is wasted on the young (me at 21, Laie, Hawaii, photo by Ian Lind)
18. Parodies
19. My fellow fiercely independent/free-lance bloggers and writers.
20. My readers, correspondents, subscribers and financial supporters.
21. "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
