A Brief Note for Thanksgiving Week
Blessings to All
We suffered a death in the family this week, and as a result my wife Amy and I have traveled to Greenville, South Carolina to put to rest her beloved grandmother Marjorie today. Marjorie was an English war-bride who married a dashing young American sailor and came to the United States to start a family with him after V-E Day. She had four wonderful children and lived an impressively long life of 93 years - a good life by any measure, and we are grateful we had so much time to be with her.
Between the travel, the funeral service, and the Thanksgiving holiday this week I have not had time to pen your weekly dose of micro-despair. I will, God willing, resume steady publication of depressing essays next week.
In the meantime, Amy and I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with joy and familial love.
