Thanksgiving (update day 9ish)

"Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives, power to retell it, to rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change, truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts." -Salman Rushdie

Despite being at the farm visiting Mom over the last few days, I've managed to get in my 15 minutes of writing (about a half hour, in fact, each day) on the article. I'm reading and taking notes...blundering around still. But it occurred to me this morning that two weeks ago I was still fantasizing about "giving back" this assignment, and now I can see my way to the finish.

I'm thankful for a wonderful family. I'm thankful to find a little time to write.
