A happy and blessed Thanksgiving to all my readers
Miss D. and I are several hundred miles from home this Thanksgiving, but we'll be joining many of her family to celebrate the season. We had a safe (albeit long and tiring) journey yesterday, and are looking forward to some fun and interesting times over the next couple of days as we do some research for a future book and also meet interesting people.
Despite all the challenges of the past year, we have a lot for which to be thankful. So does our nation, despite the many things wrong with it that seem intractable amid the political polarization and meanness that seems to dominate at present. Let's be duly grateful, and leave division aside for a while as we thank God and each other for all that is good.
