Your Basic, Old-School Thanks-giving Post

Hot water.

Mosses and mushrooms.

Animals who cuddle with other species.


People who are braver than I am.


Uniball pens.

Rhythm and harmony.

Dewy spiderwebs.


People who go out of their way to be helpful.

Madrona trees. (Okay…all trees.)

Dark chocolate.



My family. My family. My family.

Did I mention hammocks?

Keep this going, please: add yours! And may you thoroughly enjoy your Thanks Giving.
