Commentary on Meditations: B5:4

I travel on by nature's path until I fall and find rest, breathing my last into that air from which I draw my daily breath, and falling on that earth which gave my father his seed, my mother her blood, my nurse her milk; the earth which for so many years has fed and watered me day by day; the earth which bears my tread and all the ways in which I abuse her.

What a lovely little passage from Marcus - so similar in nature to Book 1, where he conveys gratitude for so many.  Here, he seems to express gratitude for all nature, from his birth to his death.

What are you grateful for today?
