Hello, fellow traveler.

Let’s share our paths for a while as we journey through the world of writing, nature, and the spiritual.

Not long ago, I came across a hardwood tree in town, its lower branches festooned with strips of white paper.  I crossed to it to investigate and found a single sentence on each paper I read.

A woman stopped by and asked, “What’s this?”

“A thanksgiving tree.”


We spent fifteen minutes sampling messages that covered many topics of gratefulness, but most were thanks for health or family.  A plastic bag of blank papers hung from one branch, an invitation for us to add our single sentence of blessing.

Continuing on,  I found myself mulling the blessings in my life.  One sentence was but a sample of the lovely things that came to mind.  And I felt stronger, better able to face the turmoil of these times.

Happy Thanksgiving!
