Expressing Gratitude – Happy Times

Posted: July 4, 2020 in Journeying, Tarot of Sweet Twilight, Tarot of the Vampyres

The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness (depending on the context). In some ways gratitude encompasses all of these meanings. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, people usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.

Our cups are brimming over. We have basked in the light hearted camaraderie on stage. Our time at the fair  in the Land of Sweet Twilight has been a sheer joy. We drink to the friendships forged, the wonder of nostalgic memories, to remembering playing theatre with our childhood friends. The Hierophant watches us and he presents a final performance. As he introduces a small child to a cat and points to fish that fly he reminds us all of just how fascinating, how diverse our world is. It feels like I am a child again and I drink in the moment – a reprieve from the real world.
