NEWS FROM THE SHADOWLANDS
Thankful for everything else, I guess. Here's a little impromptu poetry.
Thankful for the air I breathe.
Thankful for the earth beneath.
Thankful for the cosmos above.
Thankful for the people I love.
Thankful for the moon and sky
Thankful for those who try.
Thankful for the comic pages
Thankful for the holiday wages.
Thankful for the food before me
Thankful for those who sacrificed it all for me.
Thankful for my cat who sleeps nearby
Thankful for my niece, nephew and the youngest who still cries.
Thankful for new books, the new season and the new year's day
Good God, good gravy, good heavens, let's play.
And thanks for the watchers, who notice that I write on occasion. Happy Thanksgiving ya'll.
Is it fitting that today is the first snow in the Twin Cities? Oh well. Guess it'll bring new meaning to the mad rush when those bargain hunters embark on the demolition derby that is Black Friday. I think I'll stay home and watch a movie instead.
Episode 1 yesterday. Gotta gear up for episode 7. Maybe I'll do a double feature tomorrow or Saturday - I'm thinking Peanuts and then Hunger Games. Yeah, that sounds good. Maybe they'll be less people out Saturday. If the roads are bad, I might even brave the mall.
(No dancing turkey for an emoticon? Lame.)
