on choosing to give thanks …



no doubt, by now you’re stuffed to the gills with turkey and dressing.

this first holiday has been hard, and when i tried to put “how hard” into words it came seeping out in tiny bits and fragments …


… and when you’re an English major, you get to call that poetry.



care to visit my guest post today over at  in the hush of the moon? — a place where dear friend Emily writes words that make one weep for joy …
