I can’t put off the Thanksgiving hysteria any longer, so this morning I’m dragging myself and my resistant children to the grocery store. I probably won’t be back on to blog until after the holiday, but I didn’t want to leave you for all that time without something interesting to read, so I’ve decided to put up an essay I wrote for a creative nonfiction class a few years back.
A word of caution: this thing is long. About thirteen pages. So if you’re just clicking around this morning to see what’s new, you might want to come back later when you have some spare time and fresh cup of coffee. I hope you enjoy it, and I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving, stress-free cooking, and lots of wine!
