and in these last late hours

…of Second Thanksgiving, what am I grateful for?

The obvious things, of course – my partner Anna, the ability to plot my way through the financial and political crises of the day, the friends I have, all those things that matter to everyone. They matter to me, too.

But more, I’m thankful for the opportunity and ability to at least try to execute my art. I’ve fought hard for this – both for opportunity and ability – in ways most of you will never know, and really, don’t want to know. I don’t have many fans yet (and I love you, fans I have!) and I may never succeed the way I want or be able to make a living wage at it…

…but I can legitimately try.

Getting to that point has been a monumental battle, physical and emotional, of many phases and many years. And I have attained at least that much, at long last.

And for that, and for this opportunity, I am profoundly grateful.
