Happy Thanksgiving, All!

We all know that 2020 has been a difficult year, to say the least — and that this Thanksgiving, for many of us, will be unlike those in the past.  Let’s each be thankful for what we do have — whether it is our health, our homes, our hopes, or one another.

The Roanoke Times features “A Roanoke Thanksgiving”

I got a nice surprise when I woke up this morning — The Roanoke Times published my holiday poem, “A Roanoke Thanksgiving.”  You can find it right here.

As you might remember if you follow this blog, I penned this poem about my adopted city at about this time last year.  Thanks to the good folks over at The Roanoke Times for letting me share it today with my neighbors!
