Verb: Reduce (something, esp. food) to small shreds by rubbing it on a grater.
Noun: The recess of a fireplace or furnace. (Thank you dictionary.com.)
Hmmm... I am not sure I want to reduce the great things in my life, though I certainly could do with less. Maybe I can see the word as simplifying my day down to one thing that I am grateful for. One thing that I want to rub on this board. Or one thing that I find recessing in all that is around me. Something that I can shine a light on.
