Thanksgiving, in brief

“The House of the Spirits” opened last weekend to rave reviews.

P. and K. are on vacation. I am also on a vacation of sorts; now that the show has opened, I get weeknights off. So last night, rather than having to run off to rehearsal, I was treated to P.’s homemade tortillas (thanks to a gift of masa preparada from Nana) and a new hairdo from both kiddos. Tonight we made pumpkin cookies and more tortillas.

I am thankful for simple things: home-cooked food, downtime, yellow leaves blanketing the yard, the smell of nutmeg, masa, mi familia, Henry, P., K., our home, so much love.

See you next week. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  1. Yes. After the great loss of my brother who died a month ago, I’m filled with gratitude for him in my life and for life itself–all this autumn beauty, all my family and friends, all the energy you can feel as the earth quiets itself for the long sleep.
