Years ago, I concluded each day by answering three questions devised by the philosopher Spinoza.

He suggested asking at the end of each day:

What inspired me today?

Where did I experience peace, balance, comfort, or satisfaction?

What made me happy today, what, not who?

This morning inspired by the sunrise, I began my day with those three questions.  What inspires me? Where am I experiencing balance and peace? What makes me happy?

Answering springs gratitude. I plan to continue the practice.

I wing on the words of Brenda Ueland: 

It is only by expressing all that is inside that purer and purer streams come.
  

What comes?

This morning’s offering of light –
Soft –
Ease
