Happy Thanksgiving!

To my international readers, today as an annual day of Thanksgiving in the United States. 

I have much to be Thankful for. A long term loving relationship.  A comfortable home. A career that I find meaningful.  Reasonable economic security. We live in a safe and secure place.  I have few fears.  I am able to move about, for the most part as I wish.  

For too much of my life, Thanksgiving was a festival of gluttony. 

Today I will over indulge in being thankful for what I have, in being kind to others, in remembering the joys of the past year, and planning for the joys of the coming year. I will remember how fortunate we are, we are well educated, comfortable, safe, secure, not fearing an imminent death (in reasonably good health.)  I will cook something good, because I love to cook, and partaking in good food with people you enjoy is an act of love, but I will focus on the people, and the time, and all we have to be thankful for.  

Wishing you and yours a safe, secure and happy Thanksgiving. 


  1. While Thanksgiving is meaningless to us, I know it is important for you in the US, and I wish you a very happy one.

  2. glad you and sweet bear are my friends!

    1. You and Todd are so much fun, thank you for being a part of this ride.

  3. "Overindulging in being thankful" -- now that's the REAL meaning of the holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I am thankful for knowing you two.
