★ Giving thanks

abundanceOh, that for which I am grateful.

For books.

For the freedom to write
in a community of disparate voices
equally free.

For the time, sight, and mind for words.

For the vision of tomorrow alive in our libraries,
our neighborhoods and schools.

For new ventures, willing risk takers,
and this place worth the investment.

For the love of old friends
and the will of new compatriots.
For the ability to effect change.

For those with courage and those seeking it,
I give thanks.
