For me, "the little things" also include natural history observations. I'm thankful beyond words that there's always something to discover every time we step outside.
Here are a few of "the little things" that live on Bodega Head. (They really are little!)
A tiny chiton crawling among sand grains (!).
Dark-eyed Gilia (Gilia millefoliata) flowering in the dunes.
(The flowers are ~8-11 mm across. They bloom in spring/early summer.)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula) photographed in Owl Canyon on 20 October 2012.
(Total length = 4.25 inches.)
I usually have a hard time finding cards with wording I like. But this one resonated with me, so I'm passing it on to you:
"Sing a song of gratitude,
Dance a little, too...
Feel the autumn's magic
In everything you do...
Wrap yourself in laughter,
Give some love away...
Pass around the goodness —
Have a happy Thanksgiving Day!"
