friends and thanksgiving

"Friendsgiving" 2016.
The eternal schoolboy in me requires the double-quotes, although it is become quite the thing on campuses here, thankfully.

We got together, almost 40 of us at one point, scurrying away from our computers and whiteboards (I would give anything to say chalkboard). Scurrying away, for some of us, from thoughts of whatever corner of the world we called home.

There were bright lights, backslaps and that rich mead of laughter, richer than the mulled wine, the turkey (perfect) and the steady progression of steps by which one attains a food coma.

For all the trumpeting about solitude, I do get by with a little help from my friends.

Welcome visitor!
