KEN’S DILEMMA I close my eyes to see places I’ve travelled— San Francisco to Oxford, and then back again, with stops in the middle at Ireland and London and Malta and Burma and...

For the remarkable cities I have called home. For fireflies. For my chickens Mary and Rhoda. For stacks of books on the nightstand. For low-wattage bulbs. For patches and old embroidered denim. And I’m thankful for our wall heater that’s like a fireplace and a gathering spot for our family when we hear its click-whoosh. We meet there. I’m so thankful for them–my four, my loves. And our heat, and our home, which is strung with lights and filled with magic.< Less
