The first thought came to my mind, first thing in the morning as I woke up, was, "Thank you." And the last thought occupied my mind when I went to sleep at night was, "Thank you." I was thinking, "Thank you" when I ate, when I drank, when I worked, when I wkaeld, sat snllitey, when I consumed every man-made material. It was like a music in my mind.

"Thank you" were the two simple words that filled the space between my ears like a music in my head. This was experienced profoundly during the pandemic, as everyone connected to me was filled with fear and doubt and anxiety, and I had to do something different. The first thought came to my mind, first thing in the morning as I woke up, was, "Thank you." And the last thought occupied my mind when I went to sleep at night was, "Thank you." I was thinking, "Thank you" when I ate, when I drank, when I worked, when I walked, sat silently, when I consumed every man-made material. It was like a music in my mind. Sometimes I said the word "thank you" loudly even to inanimate objects like sun and the moon and the stars, birds, butterflies, trees, little creatures in the garden as if I was greeting them.
