If anyone is alone today and feeling lonely, you are invited to my Thanksgiving dinner. I made lemon & rosemary turkey. Tell me your hair & eye color & what you’re bringing, & I’ll draw you in.
Sorry I’m a slow drawer, but I’m so glad so many of you can come! @simplyjennifer and Ken have already sat down.
@seattledeb’s in the house!!
@StoneKamino, your pecan pie looks more like a mushroom pizza, but I’m sure it’s delicious. :) Welcome!
@kathlloyd0, the desser looks scrumptious!! Welcome! (Sorry you’re face is a little smudged.)
Welcome, @lisahearing!! Your hair and orange jello salad add a lot of color to our table!
@kyliejustine and @HobbesGrrrl are here!!! Don’t worry, there are more seats in the other room — this is just where we’re gathering for the group photo with the spread.
@soulrebelJ, your Mac & cheese looks amazing despite my poor drawing skills! Welcome!
.@birdie1974 Welcome! And for all in the back, you are just as much a part of the gang, don’t worry. Also you do have arms and we all do you have legs but I was afraid it would look too much like a spider if I just drew all the black Stick Figure legs sticking out. :)
@redbamajax1 and @StephTaitWrites, come on in!! I love Brussels sprouts, yum.
@KellyDippolito and @2DebbieFoulkes, great to have you both!! In case you can’t read it, the can says, “NUTS.”
.@devine_mb and @LaVeuve, welcome!!
Hello @DonnaMSchmid and purple-haired @Ceili!
Friends, I have to take a break to eat some food that’s not made out of art supplies. :) I’ll be back! Have a drink and mingle!
Hello to @MeganGailbraith and @iAmSteveAustin (heading up our third row)!
@sdbless, the banana pudding looks incredible, and @ThenaEliot, thanks for bringing your beautiful Great Dane (not pictured)!
Hi, @turquoisetangle and @LoveAlaska1105!! Thanks for the angel salad and guacamole!
Welcome, @MaryWat24564904, @Papillon124, @LaurenJonik, and @AlexaSandin!! Great to see you here. (Some of the food is going on the off-screen table at this point.)
Welcome to @MadWorks, @JenALambert, @bowling_donna, @MarnieDresser, and Wendell!
.@jnicolemorgan, @jenjlen, @newspangler, @nevancik1, @hdome251, @cratekane, @DaultRadio, @MaryLWatt, @TaraSkurtu, @TheBigMeanBean, @SheriMalman, @DelanyBisbee, @AymieJoi, & everyone else, come in, come in! I can’t draw anymore today, but I love you all! Thank you for being here.
Welcome to everyone who's still rolling in! I wish I could draw all of you beautiful people. But even though the drawing is done, the feast is still going strong, so pull up a chair and grab a plate!
Twitter won’t let me like any more of your posts, but you’re all still in! Everybody’s in! Have some pie!
Okay, everyone else keep hanging out, I’m just gonna go take a nap in my bed under all your coats. Goodnight, everyone!
GOOD MORNING! You are all still in my house, huh? Okay, I'm making a BIG pot of coffee. Who takes cream and sugar?

Okay, here’s a funny story. When I was making the index for this new book, I wrote down hope as one of the categories. But after I had gone through almost all the benedictions I realized I had only categorized one as hope. (1/4) ImageImage
That seemed like an oversight to me, so I started looking at them again. And I realized it wasn’t that none of them were about hope, but more that all of them were about hope, but not in a direct, imperative way. None of them say, “Be hopeful!“ (2/4)
But hey are about being real & acknowledging pain w/out letting that be the end of the story. Hope is in the edges of each poem, in the soft space between the lines, in the freedom to feel what you feel without judgment & bring the whole of yourself forward into the next moment.

What if the word racist wasn’t the bad thing?
What if it was an awakening?
A realization & a choice like

Alcoholic. Oh, we’d say. Oh, shit.
But then we could go to a meeting
& be real for once.

Hi, I’m ___, we would say
& they’d reply, Hi, ____.
How can we help you get sober?
What if we admitted that we were powerless
without help, That, as James Baldwin said,
white people are trapped in a history which we

do not understand & until we understand, we cannot
be released. What if the word racist is not the end
of freedom, but the beginning?
What if we learned the exact nature of our wrongs &
Admitted them? What if we

Made a list of all persons we & our country had harmed, & became willing to make amends to them all?

What if we made direct amends to such people?
What if we called those amends reparations?
