Getting into Gratitude Mode

I confess I'll be grateful when the election news subsides (I hope) on Wednesday. And I've got a list of "attitude of gratitude" items most of the time. But for a jump start into the Thanksgiving spirit, within a framework of "praise poetry," here's an engaging series coming up in Johnson, VT:

River Arts and LCCDRJP (Lamoille County Court Diversion) are putting on a free poetry workshop on three Wednesdays in November: Wednesdays the 12th, the 19th, and the 26th of November. Julia Shipley -- a published poet, River Arts instructor and Sterling College Professor -- will lead the free workshop.
Please come eat lunch, and then work on poetry together. The theme of the workshop is praise poems, and it will be held at the Johnson (VT) Community Meal. The Community Meal takes place every Wednesday and is free to all: 11:30– 1:00 at the United Church of Johnson 100 Main Street, Johnson, VT Special thanks to the Vermont Arts Council for making this event possible!
