thank you for one of the most fun parts of being a writer: Research.
Thank you for the alluring rabbit trails
and multiple (even conflicting) sources
and fascinating discoveries
that make research so enjoyable.
Thank you for the availability of information
Thank you for the thrill of tracing a quote
or some other detail
backward through layers of secondary sources
to find the origin,
even when it necessitates a change of plan.
Thank you for the blessings
and dangers of living
in the Information Age,
in Jesus' name,
