Reasons to be thankful...

I have been blessed with so much in my life...the love of a man who has given my heart its true home, the joy of seeing my son grow up with strength and integrity, a quirky family of individual snowflakes, a home in the country with lots of windows to see the woods and sky, good health and physical fitness, opportunities to grow as a woman and an artist, and an indefatigable trust in the bounty of the universe... So many reasons to be thankful...

Jol my love
Daniel my son
my mother Ellie
my father Carl who watches me from heaven
my two brothers, three sisters, two sisters-in-law, two brothers-in-law, two nieces and six nephews,
my sweet animal friends Heidi, Jezebel, and Samantha
my friends far and wide ( I miss them! )
my students and colleagues
my blogland buddies who inspire and encourage me every day...

Have a safe, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving!

Have I missed your birthday? Happy belated birthday Carla!

And this looks like another card in your Tarot series... though I suspect its a card that ought to be called "Gratitude" which doesn't exist. Beautiful! You have a shining heart.

So pretty, Carla!! This is a nice graphic departure from your usual organic line work. I love it! You sure have a lot of self-portraits (I assume) collected these days. :-) By the way, there seems to be some commotion on the IF boards today about Penelope's addition to the email regarding not adding commentary. Some think it's because recently people have been posting only text and not art. Others argue that it's death to their commentary to go along with the art and are boycotting the site altogether (which is sad). I thought of you, since you always have great commentary to go with each post. What is your take on her request? Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! thanks for sharing this beatiful post!!!
Your menu sounded so yummy! I have never had fried sage leaves...sounds fun! We (just the four of us) had a traditional semi vegan meal! We were vegan for six years ...then we had a very difficult eater join the family and slowly changed to a much easier diet ....for now.
