Tangerines always fill me with gratitude!

Yesterday I bought a whole bag, suddenly very aware of the fact that the citrus season is slowly disappearing as summer approaches. I had three, and they were wonderful! Oh, the burst of perfume as you break the skin! The sweet, juicy interior filled with liquid sunlight!

As a sweet bonus, these tangerines marked the start of a new phase in my life. They delighted me so much that I achieved what I had thought impossible: For the first time in weeks I got through a day without chocolate.

Yes, I am very grateful.
