Today, I am grateful for old books, new pens, clean sheets of paper, and The Condensed Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, which comes with its own magnifying glass so I can look up things like the origin of the word blithe and discover it's an Old English word first found in the poem Elene and other works by Caedmon in a manuscript written around 1000 AD. I knew I liked the seventh-century monk, but seriously, he deserves his sainthood for this one word alone. I've not read Elene yet but will look it up today in a modern English translation because, sadly, my Old English is a bit rusty.
What are you grateful for today?
Edited: Turns out Caedmon didn't write Elene at all. It was written by the Anglo-Saxon poet Cynewulf, about whom very little is known. Sorry for the error above!
