Here are some things to be thankful for: tilapia marinating in ginger and soy, and cabbage and bok choy ready for the knife; warm scones with butter on a weekday afternoon, while watching the Dublin rain pour down; the abundance of museums; the rarity of skunks; high-top sneakers that fit perfectly; the rough pebbly texture of Kona's paws, the velvety fur on her warm chest, the scratchable cavity under her jaw; a postcard, from a long lost friend; the magic of a daily afternoon nap; good pure sea salt; mangoes and maps; the half-seen flash of a fox at night...
