Thank you for all our bounty.
I am traveling today. By the time this is posted, I will have arisen around 4:30 AM, driven two hours to the airport and boarded a plane for Boston.
By 10 AM, we will be in Boston to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Spending the day with family, we will be flying home on Friday. Pretty much a one and done day. But well worth it.
Others with greater qualifications than I have written about thanksgiving. Here’s one I enjoy:
“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite – only a sense of existence. Well, anything for variety. I am ready to try this for the next ten thousand years and exhaust it. How sweet to think of! my extremities well charred, and my intellectual part too, so that there is no danger of worm or rot for a long while. My breath is sweet to me. O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.”
― Henry David Thoreau
