My sisterlove gwynraven is here. She's one of the people who makes this Thanksgiving, and she almost wasn't able to come this year; we would have been heartbroken if she couldn't make it. And she was able to make it because of the special Wind Tunnel Dreams story circle we ran. So she's here because a bunch of you said no, this family needs to be together, and you pitched in and made it happen.

I am thankful for our Gwyn, and I am thankful for all of you.

I am thankful that slipjig and rafaela are here. (They almost weren't, too!) This is our third year in the kitchen, me and my two Adams, and it would, again, not be Thanksgiving without them.

People are coming here from as far away as Louisiana and New York, as close as Vermont and New Hampshire, as close as the next town over. People who have been here before, and people who haven't. My daughter's first real girlfriend will be here.

I am thankful for my chosen family and my friends. And we are thinking of all of you. We are thinking of feste_sylvain and tamidon, who host their own Thanksgiving. We are thinking of s00j and omnisti, felisdemens and J and maxymyllyn, themaskmaker and harkalark and haikujaguar, so far away.

The wonderful thing about this life is that you meet so many more people to love. All around the world.

I'll be raising my glass to all of you today, when the turkey is done.

The power of gothlings compels us! Many of us.

So glad you're all having a good time. (And dammit, I knew about Storm Large, I should've told you about her!)

Keep having a Happy Thanksgiving!

But especially to Elayna and her Gothling.

I read your last line as "raise a glass of turkey."
