In the USA it is formally….

Thanksgiving Day… we will have a traditional meal.. turkey and dressing and sides and ice cream for dessert.

HOWEVER it has now become for me a day of awareness of what my people (white Europeans) did to the indigenous peoples of this land.

I just learned about the day of mourning, this morning. Read this article and become aware.

May this day be a day of good things but also of remembrance.

From our house to yours.

Old 2016 poem found

Autumn is falling on the ground
Fading into a mushy brown
Covering walk paths and bushes
And just blowing around

Tops of the trees bare
Of the leaves that they shed
Branches reach upward
Without offering shade

The days are quite short
The nights very long
Winter is coming
Time to hibernate
