November 27, 2014 my dear friend, Rick and his wife, Lorraine, invited me over to Lorraine’s Mama Lou’s for Thanksgiving. Due to my work schedule I don’t have the chance to visit with my own family on this holiday, so every year I am surprised by where I will spend the holiday. So for me the meaning of Thanksgiving has become a time to dine with strangers who, fast become friends, then ultimately extended family. I feel the warmth and welcoming of wonderful people who will share their life with me. They don’t shy away from my lens and will suffer in the cold to so I can do at least one group photograph.
