ten things to remind me i am wealthy even when i don’t feel it

  1. running out of tea bags and choosing from three varieties of loose leaf
  2. cleaning my false tooth
  3. driving the little old car – that i fully own – to work. Or walking. Or catching the bus
  4. paying rates
  5. having plenty to throw out on pick up day
  6. having time to drink a cup of tea every morning
  7. having to move stuff aside to find something in the fridge
  8. having a garden full of flowers in a neighbourhood full of flowers
  9. being asked to grab something from the tallest shelf
  10. walking around my neighbourhood even on dark evenings

On the back step

The sun is gently rising and I’m sitting on the back step,
watching the paint peel, and
the grass overgrow the side fence, and
Old Limpy hobble after her fat, clucky sisters.

And my hands are warmed by a mug of hot tea.

And all is well in my world.
And all is well in my world.
