In Gratitude

Dear Readers,

Thank you for being here this year.

I am grateful.

Please forgive my post-election absence.

I’ve needed some time to regroup and refocus.

May you enjoy your time with family, friends, and whomever is in your life.

What are you grateful for? To whom to you give thanks?

  1. Good to hear from you. Glad you are getting some rest and renewal. I’m thankful for family, friends and lovers of democracy.

  2. Glad you’re back Lady Boomer.

    Met you in Denver.

    Thankful for the new friends I found during this election and who are still fighting the good fight to end the TX Caucus (so-called two step) as we speak.

    Hope you’re feeling renewed and refocused and look forward to hearing your thoughts once again.

  3. Good to hear from you.
    Got a lot or personal reasons for gratitude. And on the larger scale, my fellow PUMAs keeping me sane to all this. It may not feel good to say “I told you so” when you predicted crappy things. But it is extremely empowering to know you remained the same, true to yourself even as the world turned upside down. I am finally getting Kipling’s poem

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

  4. met you on the bus to DC on June 7- glad you are back-we desperately need commentary like yours-the truth will set you free.

  5. Kinda late to the party, (nothing new there).

    You have written some stellar posts this year, I thank you for that. Happy Holidays and keep up the great work!
    Thanks again!

  6. mary and soupcity — Thank you so much for the encouragement. I truly have felt worn out and tired of fighting and am focusing on revitalizing my work and earning money after a year of blogging. I’m also stunned at news on all fronts, and feel that now, more than ever, my focus is to produce peace and healing — inner and outer. Blessings to you and all visitors for a safe, prosperous, joyful holiday season and new year.

  7. I love that song.

    Joan Baez does a great job.

    Please let us not forget about Phil Oaks, a brillant writer, a wonderful folk singer and a sad and tragic man.

    He wrote those words.


  8. Mmm, yes, thank you, Delle. I saw Phil Ochs version on YouTube, but didn’t realize he’d written it, and always remembered and liked Joan’s version. I forget, what else did Phil Ochs write?
