24 November

pumpkin muffin

So very much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. I hope you are all feeling it tonight, too. 

We sat around the table today and shared gratitudes. I'm not sure if he misunderstood or if he's just very profound, but James said he was grateful for Beatrice. We all cried. 

I hardly ever bring my camera to holiday family gatherings anymore. I'm not sure why; maybe it's just that I wanted to step out from behind the lens. So I have a single, solitary photo of a pumpkin muffin this morning. And that feels good, too ... some things don't need to be captured by a camera to matter, you know? 

Feeling so grateful tonight for my siblings, my new sister-in-law, my generous mom and the strangers at her table today.

And so grateful for all of you who visit me and make being in this space worthwhile. Thank you, thank you.



(PS: I'm working on a number of deadlines this week so I probably will take a break from responding to comments until next week. I will still post though.)
