As we move into the bustle of the holiday season, we invite you to pause and give thanks for the things that sustain us throughout the year at the fifth-annual "Nature of Gratitude" on December 12. The event will include live music from Grammy-nominated Native American flute master Gentle Thunder, accomplished songwriter and Oregon Book Award-winning poet Beth Wood, and a special surprise musical guest. Performance poets Jorah LaFleur and Charles Goodrich will contribute spoken word pieces. Other contributors include Tom Titus, author of Palindrome: Grateful Reflections from the Home Ground; and Eric Alan, photographer and author of the forthcoming Grateful by Nature.
Nature of Gratitude is free, and everyone is welcome. This year’s theme is “Returning,” and in line with the theme, we'll be accepting donations to support Oregon State University’s new “Food for Thought” program, which recaptures quality food that might have otherwise been composted and repackages it for distribution to low-income, OSU students who are experiencing food insecurity.
