A different kind of tease for the week. ..
I have been asked by Ashley at www.nourishing-the-soul.com to participate in an interblogg experiment, and write about the word Gratitude. This experiment is called Self-Discovery, Word by Word.
I am headed to the Northwest for a few days of empty-head time and will not be posting a column this week. I will post my column on Gratitude Friday, October 15. Please check back then. In the mean time, here is an excerpt:

That said, it is well within my appreciation. I appreciate being here – gratitude. And really, gratitude is just a formal name for appreciation.”
Please check back Friday the 15 for the completed column.
