2019 things I loved about 2019

Last year Howard Wolinsky challenged me to write about
the 2018 things I learned in 2018.  Great idea.  In 2019
I had a great year.  It's been a hard year for the planet,
making me even more grateful for every day
that went well, every day when people were kind and
generous and funny.  And I am blessed that the people
in my world are that way.

Here is a fast drawing of tulips that I did tonight.  One
of the things I learned over and over in 2019, and in
other years as well is that I love flowers.  My favourite
flowers used to be roses.  But this year I think maybe
tulips have edged out the roses a bit.  Not completely.
But I notice myself feeling ecstatic every time I see
tulips for sale.  They are so spring like.

It has been a wonderful day.  And I hope it was for
you too. So I'd say I learned about the tulip lesson
time 200 this year.  Maybe.  I learned every time I
saw them anywhere that I love tulips.

Have a recognizing what you love day.
