Lizards. The favorite snack of my cat. I’m tempted to upload a video of him eating all but the tiny toxic bit, what I make up must be a lizard large intestine. It’s anything but large – these lizards aren’t dinosaurs, they’re the garden variety. 6, 8 inches max.

The January weather has come back around to the way I love it so in San Diego. Our equivalent to winter is wetness and that seems to have all dried up. Warmth becomes us and the lizards emerge to the concrete surfaces, lifting their heads high, gazing directly into the blinding glow of their sun God.

Tonight I host Mr. Toca Rivera for dinner and a rehearsal of new songs. It’s hard to believe he and I have been together for more than 10 years now. Looking back at the last decade I've so much to be thankful for, his friendship included. Rather than making this blog a stroll down memory lane, I’ll stay present and list a decade’s worth of Gratitude (what I can remember of it anyway) in 90 seconds. Go.

I am grateful for:

regularity
a community of dreamers
java joe
the power of possibility and all my teachers
my totally rad parents
raw food
malleable bodies
malleable reality
the physics of surf
the logic of maybe
the mu phenomenon
my best friend and fiancé
the friends who supported me
the friends i support
burning man
cafe gratitude and the huge community it supports
