Happy Thanksgiving! May you feel warm, safe, and maybe floaty this holiday, as if tucked into a blue tulle sky. This photo, I'm alive, by Savannah Daras, comes from her solo feature at Escape Into Life, and today accompanies a sad but calm excerpt from the journal of Chris Al-Aswad, the founding editor of EIL.  Look for a Thanksgiving message from Chris's father, Basel, at Escape Into Life tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day. I am thankful to have met Chris and Basel and to have become a contributor and then an editor at EIL. And, of course, I'm grateful to be alive on this beautiful earth under this beautiful blue sky!

Or, here in the blog, this beautiful purplish sky!

Now I want red hair.

And pumpkin bread.The pumpkin bread is baked.  And wrapped. And be-ribboned, and ready to share with family wamily!!

I read the EIL post earlier today. I, too, am grateful to Chris for what he left us, and for the opportunities I've been given to help carry that vision forward.

In gratitude for your friendship and support, Kathleen. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
