When I talked to the faith keeper at Six Nations back in December, she told me to pray for gratitude and to look for joy in this walk. I’ve tried to do both things. I’ve experienced many moments of joy: seeing a cardinal in the trees, drinking cold water on a hot day, catching the ozone smell when it begins to rain. Tonight, more joy: dinner at Twisted Lemon in Cayuga. I haven’t eaten food like that in ages. What a meal. If you’re in the neighbourhood, you need to experience it. I’m grateful I had the opportunity.
