Gratitude List 1085: Buying Books, a Growing Library, Therapeutic Reading, Naps, and Fall

  1. I can support poets by buying their books.

  2. My poetry library is growing faster than I can digest it.

  3. I have been feeling devastated about my own poetry since last December, but I’m starting to see the light at the end of this long, slow slog. Immersing myself in others’ work is therapy like no other in this regard.

  4. Naps. Naps! Naps are the best.

  5. Fall is my absolute favourite time of year, and it’s here with the perfect weather for my favourite clothes. I can layer t-shirts with blazers and wear my biker jacket and best shoes. Oh, that September could last all year.
