Giving Thanks

November 25th, 2010 — 12:16pm

In a few hours, our extended family will come celebrate Thanksgiving. I am grateful for so many things:

my husband
our beautiful children
our parents
our friends
our health
having good food to eat
clean water
my job
my book and the team that supports it: Patty, my editor; Stephanie, my agent; Lindsay, my publicist.
my Guild guitar which sounds better with age
living in Berkeley
and the miracle of farms coming back to Rockland County, where I was born.

This picture was taken at Cropsey Farm. Under a licensing agreement with Rockland County and the Town of Clarkstown, the Rockland Farm Alliance has created Rockland’s first community farm. There were just a few farms left when I was growing up in the 60s, and that land occupied a a huge space in my heart and consciousness.

I am thrilled for all the kids growing up in Rockland that they will once again have the opportunity to know what a farm is.
