Thanksgiving is in the air. There’s a 20 pound turkey thawing in the fridge, yams and russets are standing by in the pantry, canned pumpkin and chocolate chips nestle in the cupboard beside tins of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.

But the gang won’t be gathering this year. Instead, we will have a masked, socially-distanced food swap just past noon in M’s garage, and a Zoom dinner at 4:00. And I couldn’t be more grateful!

Because at this writing, we are all healthy, and have what we need.

And that is what I wish for you, Dear Friends, health and sustenance–Health and sustenance and the spirit of gratitude to appreciate such sweet, simple gifts.
